What to Expect
Covering an immense area of 473,481sq km Sumatra, Indonesia second largest island, strategically straddles the Indian Ocean on its west and the Straits of Malacca on its northeast, making it historically an important route for shipping and trade and also a channel that has traditionally been plagued by piracy.
Lake Toba is one of the awesome natural wonders of the world. This enormous crater lake has an island almost the size of Singapore in its centre. At over 1,145 square km, and a depth of 450 meters, Lake Toba is actually more like an ocean. This is the largest lake in Southeast Asia and one of the deepest lakes in the world. Toba is a place to come and sit back, relax and absorb some beautiful pristine scenery. As you sit and take in the view of the picturesque mountains set against the cool clear lake, you will feel the worries of the world melt away.
