On arrival at Kuala Namu Airport in Medan, you’ll meet your guide and drive via a scenic road with magnificent views over estate plantations of rubber and palm oil to Parapat, a small town on the shores of Lake Toba. After lunch board the local ferry in the late afternoon for a short trip across the lake to Tomok, a village on Samosir Island.

Overnight in your hotel in Tuktuk

D2

Samosir Island

Visit Ambarita, a most interesting Batak Toba village which is well-known for its unique stone chairs, tribunals and execution stones where enemies and criminals were slaughtered and eaten by this once-cannibalistic tribe, then enjoy a traditional dance performance and then board a boat to visit the island’s capital of Pangururan and a relaxing soak in the hot springs of Tele.

Overnight in your hotel in Tuktuk

D3

Samosir Island to Berastagi

After breakfast visit the tombs of the Sidabutar Kings before crossing the lake by ferry to Parapat where you’ll then continue along the northern shore of the lake to Berastagi. After lunch en route you’ll visit one of the highly decorated historic home of one of the Simalungan Kings, dated back 200 years. Then visit the 120 metre Sipisopiso Waterfall before arriving at a village home of the Batak Karo people who have unusal wedding and funeral ceremonies lasting for days on end. You’ll see their longhouses up close where up to 6 families live together.

In the late afternoon explore the climate station at Berastagi at 1400 metres above sea level before finishing the day at your hotel

Driving time from Tangkahan to Bukit Lawang is 2 1/2 hours (45km)

D6

Orang Utans

Start at 8am for a trek into the jungle with your guide. A tracker will go ahead to see if any orangutans are in the area. The track gets more challenging after the first 40 minutes but well worthwhile. After lunch back at the Eco Lodge, cross the Bohorok River to visit the Timbang Lawan Eco Farm which is an example of sustainable farming and tourism.
