We visited the Sipisopiso waterfall and the view was superb and perfect for photograph. The viewing site also gave a background of the Lake Toba which was also mesmerising. The walk down to a nearer view of the waterfall takes about 40 minutes down and 40 minutes back up, and I didnt join my 2 young boys and my brother... More

To experience this rare sights of nature, you must trek all the way down where the waterfall meets the ground. Will be able to capture good photos of you touching the rainbows and rare sights of double rainbows. The sun was overhead. Be ready to get wet. Bring extra clothes. Go find your pots of gold at the end of... More

Excellent view of the waterfall and the end of the Lake Toba. There is not enough sitting area for tourists to sit and enjoy the view however. Toilet facility is poor. There are few souvenier shops there and few small 'rumah makan' should you feel like having a meal..

This was a short stopover where we took the chance to have our toilet break. The waterfall is not as impressive as other waterfalls I have been before, but nevertheless still a waterfall. We hiked from the top to the mid point of the waterfall for a closer look. The hike is not steep and very suitable for young kids.... More

Majestic. The waterfall is located at the end of the lake and drops over 100m. The surrounding area is green and pristine. The air is cool and fresh.

It was a blessing in disguise that we have visited this place. When we where staying in Samosir Island, we weren't able to go to Simagande waterfall due to bad weather and time constraints. We stop over this place on our way back to Medan. It was one of the best stop-over we had. The falls is very tall and... More

We went over to these falls before we visited the other attractions in the area. It was a refreshing welcome and surely the falls are a beauty to the eyes. Sit down for a tea break before heading off to the other places.
