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

Many waterfalls are a series of drops but this one just cascades straight down the side of the mountain in one huge drop. There are markets and food stalls around the area if you need to buy water or want a souvenir. There are also various walking paths you can take to see the waterfall from a different angle.

The view of this place is breath taking! The climb all the way down to the bottom is a bit tough but once you get all the way down you'll see it is worth it! If you want you can get over to the bottom of the he water fall and stay for a bit on the rocks right next... More

This was well worth the trip from Samosir Island. My friend and guide took me on motorbike to this stunning spot - about a 2 hour journey each way but amazing scenery to keep you occupied as you cruise along. The waterfall is absolutely stunning. Every view on the way down is breathtaking, and the power and beauty of the... More
