“Real beauty of Indonesia”
Review of Lake Maninjau

Lake Maninjau
Ranked #1 of 53 things to do in Padang
Attraction details
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Lake maninjau is not a typical lake, she has a great panoramic view, nice coloring of the lake, and a lovely atmosphere. Its worth the time spent for climbing onto bukit lawang. Seeing a lake, giant lake maybe, from the top of the hill was really a nice experience. People there are delightful, very welcome. Me and my family had a great picture of us taken there. Hope i can go back here someday

If you are looking to get in contact with nature and stay a night in a traditional hut chilling out while reading a book and enjoying a wonderful lake view then this is the place to go. Food served in the bar is also really good and the prices are cheap. Conditions of the huts are very basic, but that doesn't really matter if you are looking to spend some time relaxing in Nature.

Half the fun is in the travelling there and back. Enjoyed the countryside climb going up and the beach road coming back to Padang. Take time to take in the lake view from Puncak Lawang. Beautiful. Wrap yourself, it's cold up there!!!
I had a good driver Romi (unfortunately he only speaks Bahasa Indonesia) who took the intiative to show us around beyond the beaten track!! His number is 082169161967. Good man!
