piso means knife. so literally the waterfall does looks like a blade of knife. thin, but tall. I did not go down to the base of the waterfall, but the view from above is average. there is trek to go down to the base.

This is the tallest waterfalls I've ever seen. Sipisopiso waterfalls is one of the tourist attraction spot on the way to Lake Toba. We visited as a family. The view around this place was so peaceful. If you want to swim around, you need to walk down the stairs it's quite long trail.

I would say Sipiso Piso is the Mother of Waterfalls. The most beautiful and amazing waterfalls i ever seen in my lifetime history. I give a try to reach down. Its about more than 1500 stairs if im not mistaken.it took about 30 mins to go down and 1hour to climb up. What i see is indescribable.magical mystery

We were on our way to Simalan resort, and stopped enroute for a very good view of this amazing waterfall. Be prepared to tackle steps.

About an hours drive from Berastagi this waterfall can be viewed from the car park which is bordered with eateries and other stalls. To get the full effect, you clamber down 654 steps - uneven shapes and sizes but a handrail for most of the way and not always in full sun. At the bottom there is a basic tea... More

Actually there is nothing much to do here except enjoy the view. Do try to walk down the staircase but don't go to far down as climbing up maybe tiring. The entrance fee is IDR4000 per adult.

Its worth it! Long journey with fabulous experience! Three hours from Medan. Standing in with the view of Sipisipiso Waterfall at your right and Lake Toba at your left. Our tourist guide (Supir) said we are his first customer (within three years working as supir) whom tried to walk down the trail. Haha. Funny yet worth it! Easy to go... More
