Good place to visit. If you can walk 100 odd strais you can go near the Falls. You also get a view of late Toba. It is not far from main road just about 25 mins drive by car.

Whilst this waterfall is the tallest in Indonesia, the river is quite small so the falls are not hugely impressive. But quite interesting to see that the river is an underground one, so the water "pops out" from a hole in the cliff face. Worth a visit if you are in the area, the views of Lake Toba are also...

A waterfall 117m high, and a climb of 700+ steps! It is a 6km detour off the main road between medan and lake toba. So not much of a detour considering how amazing it is. The climb down the steps was ofcourse easy....and deceptive! The climb back up was a struggle. So not for the unfit or those with wonky... More

The waterfall is impressive and the walk down thrilling. The parking lot has several restaurants and loads of souvenir shops. It is a very nice place to visit.

I like this place as it was awesome and good for photography. The temperature was cold and really refresh my mind, body and soul. I also down to the bottom to see the waterfall closely and of course got wet as splashed by water. I disliked for the garbage surrounding.

Long drive here, some would say, the waterfall is like a drain water falling off a cliff, but then again it is quite high and a sight to behold. Couldn't recommend the toilet though, but thats a problem with all of toba.

In photo it looks stunning, but when I came to this place its just any other waterfall. You could skip this itenery if you want to, though its very easy to get here via the Sidikalang-Tongging road. I spent only 15 mins here taking photos. But way down the opposite side is an awesome view of the village Tongging which... More

There is nothing interesting really. It's a nice brownish gushing waterfall from afar. You need to hike down flights of stairs, and perhaps it would be more impressive then. The view of Lake Toba does not beat those that I have seen while travelling from Lake Toba on the way here. The biggest letdown is of course the amount of... More

The view of the waterfall from the top was beautiful enough but did not have the 'wow' factor. I think we would have appreciated it more if we had the time to hike down and hear the rumble of the waterfall up close and enjoy the pool of water at the base. But what really caught us gasping was the... More

Nothing there, only to see a tiny waterfall. There are so many people crowded there, not worth travelling all the way just to see a tiny waterfall.
