Same condition as Lake Toba, this waterfall is also very beautiful but surrounding facility is not supporting. We can see the waterfall from above, no need to go downstairs but if you don't mind to go down and up again then please go down and enjoy the fresh breeze of the waterfall

Steps all the way. Had barricades along the path but do not trust it too much as it is not made to be very sturdy. Not advisable for children who like to run around and not listen due to the danger of the climbing down of steps to waterfall. At least age 11. Not advisable for those with weak knees... More

My friends and I went to Sipiso Piso with the intention of climbing down the many steps to the base, take some photos, and climb back up, all within an hour as we had been advised. The climb down was uneventful and we stopped now and then to capture closer shots of the waterfall. When we were at the base,... More

The view was fantastic. Our only regret is that we did not have enough time nor strength to walk down the steps leading to the sat do the waterfall. It would have been great if we did do that. If you were to visit this place, please accord half a day to walk down the steps to the base of... More

Can't deny the waterfall and the lake are so stunning but sadly, the place where you have to see all that is dirty and looks abandoned. Why?

This waterfall is near the Toba Lake. 15 minutes from simalem. The sceenery around the lake makes it so worth to see. It take about 30 to 1 hour to walk down.. but you'll never regret it. And about 1 hour to go up.

It is beautiful and magnificent. Although Its not much things to do here other than to admire its beauty from far (unless you have the energy to go down and climb up), it still worth it to pay a visit if you're passing through nearby Merek. For more adventure and nature lover, please go and visit Desa Tongging nearby. The... More
