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.

A very good view of waterfall and lake Toba. The small shops in the walk way provide hot beverages and light snacks, which is really enjoyable. But visitors please keep the place clean. DO NOT LITTER.

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.
