Batak Dance

In front of an open terrain a more tourists are gathered than we saw in total the last couple of days. And in front of a scale model of a traditional Batak house are a group Batak people dancing. Well, dancing is a big word for the small movements they make. The program indicates multiple dances, but we see little variation. When some tourists join them, we hardly see a difference. And then a dancing doll enters the scene, making more moves than the dancers themselves. The tourists are supposed to give a donation to the doll, which is rewarded with a loud “Horas”. And that is the most exciting part of the exhibition.
The accompanying Batak museum isn’t much either. A little disappointed we hop pack on our motorbikes and move on. What amazes us most is that this place attracts most of the tourists around Lake Toba.
We move on along the outside of the island, passing many traditional houses, most of them with zinc roofs. Also many impressing grave towers, with on top of them a miniature traditional house.

Candra life at Hot springs "Pangururan"

As we approach the other side of the island, the mainland comes in sight. A large white spot on the crater edge draws our attention. It almost seems like a ski trail, but we suppose it must be chalk or sand. A little later we arrive at the village where the island is connected to the main land by a small bridge. In fact, the bridge was only needed since the Dutch dug a canal to separate the island from the main land in 1906. We pass the bridge and drive up to search for our next goal: the hot springs. The closer we get, the more we realize the white spot is where we will find the hot springs.
The hot springs are accompanied by a number of restaurants and a large parking lot. But there are not many tourists. At one of the restaurants we park our motorbikes and order a meal. While we wait we see a little girl playing with to chicks, one of them bright yellow, the other bright green. Funny little animals, although it is sad that they probably have no mother and are obviously artificially colored.
After lunch we search for the hot springs. Every restaurant appears to have a bath of swimming pool fed with hot water from the springs, but we want to find the springs themselves. So we climb up, until we reach a restaurant that only lets us through if we order something. Here is a pool as well, but also a natural bath in the rocks. And as we climb up, we reach the actual source of the hot springs. In some kind of white moon landscape there is a stream of hot, yellow water. It is boiling up from the rocks, although we cannot see exactly where.

At The Gareja Bolon Pangururan

Memory Tu Akka Namardongan

Start over from now and tomorrow be going to over. Where some of memory or story might be deleted or had forgOt it and there is no love to review all had happened at the passed. Only some person who remember that memory and singing several songs that formely did it. When they have to sparate to gain their dream, ambition each other, there is only something to make them could gather it is when celebrated Merry christmass and new year. Posibbly these are a correct time for them.
lean your eyes for them who is singing a song


At the Lapo Tuak

Here i am stoping at the lapo tuak and sang together with my friends especially batak song that time when i back from my old friend house then i stoped over at this lapo (stall) and g0t some drinks such usual people did at the night.

How beautiful the night is.

A Few Minutes at Pasir Putih

White sand is one of the objects of nature tourism (scenic spot) the beautiful and freshly. White Sand is often called the "PASPUT"; in the year 2007 was inaugurated by Mr. Regent samosir ir.Mangindar Simbolon. White sand located in the village Hutabolon Parbaba. We have white sand into the most favorite tourist attraction for a pretty good panorama, affordable & stuated especially welcome local people who attract the attention of tourists and so the place is always crowded, and have enough parking area. The number of visitors usually tend to be much on Saturday and Sunday, except on certain days such as on public holidays. The number of visitors doubled to five major bus transportation to the location of the beach look busy. To this day the impression that getting from the visitors that White Sands is truly satisfying for a place to spend a vacation. Because besides the beach and a beautiful lake is also a snack, food typical of Batak, shady place, where sunbathing, beach Volly areas and other supporting factors.

enjoy your holyday and come to lake toba you 'll be there enjoy
support samosir / lake toba be dream island.
