We were returning from our trip from Lake Toba to Medan and this amazing waterfall is on the way. The route from Toba to this place is awesome and all the time you can see different views of Lake toba. Once you reach the area, you can see the falls from the top. It's really beautiful to walk down to the base of the falls and its an awesome experience and the entire journey was memorable. It takes about 40 mins to get down and another 60 mins to climb up and children also can do with parents guidance.

Enjoy the view and soak in the beauty.

Sipiso-piso waterfall is located in hutabaringin hamlet,tongging village,merek district,north sumatera province,indonesia.
Sipiso-piso waterfall is one of the highest waterfall in this world.the view is very beautiful and the air is cool to make us fell happy.the road about 50 meters,we can see lake toba from altitude.at the sunset view, the scenery is very nice. To reach the waterfall,we have to descend from the hill through hundreds of stairs about 750 stairs. This is very quite tiring.
Entrance fee for motorcycles Rp 5000 and for car Rp 10.000.beside the scenery,here also many who sell souvenirs and fruit and vegetables from the local farms.the place to eat is also so good.
But the neatness and cleanliness of this tour is less in the attention by the goverment.so this is less memorable good.its road facilities are already getting damage and slippery when it rain.

Sipiso-piso waterfall is a waterfall located in Hutabaringin, Tongging Village, Merak Subdistrict, Karo Rule, North Sumatra Province, Indonesia. The distance from Medan to sipiso-piso waterfall is about 75 KM. Beautiful natural scenery, air and waterfall was cool.
There are souvenir kiosks and food stalls. For those of you who want to bring souvenirs from sipiso-piso can stop by the stalls and for those of you who are hungry because of the length of travel can also eat at the stall.
To come to the bottom of the waterfall should descend the number of stairs that are about 1000. So if you want to down the stairs should have a stamina fit and a strong spirit. The waterfall is at an altitude of 800 meters above sea level and falls off a 120-meter-high cliff. Along the way down the stairs there are some stalls, if you are tired you can stop for a moment in the shop. Fatigue down the stairs will be replaced after you reach the bottom of the waterfall Because of the wonder of the wonders of nature in this place.
The more the afternoon the higher the water flow and also torrential, the cold also increases. Battle waterfall we can feel when we are still at the end of the ladder so that our clothes get wet.
Tiring down stairs is nothing compared to when we raise it back because we have to climb it. So do not be surprised if my friends yesterday it included me hehehe .. Feel the head of a dizzy and very tired body. But overall I am very happy to have gained an amazing experience with my friends in this place.
