Never stopping long waterfall

Still wondering how there can be water coming out in the middle of the cliff continuously. The view was amazing.

Samosir villa, however, did not live up to expectations (the toilet flush and hot water wasn't working for one of the rooms). The driver Mr lam was very safe and good; we appreciated that he was flexible in changing our... More

If you plan to go down late afternoon, not many people down there and it could be dangerous if you are alone or two as its going dark and none could hear your... More
