Lake Toba is located in the North of Sumatera. To be exact it is sited in a beautiful small town named Parapat. Lake Toba became a famous tourism object because it is the biggest lake in Indonesia. It is a gigantic lake and it has a small island in the middle of it named Samosir Island.

Lake Toba existed because of super volcano explosion for about 75,000 years ago. After the explosion, a caldera was created naturally and it formed a Lake. This Lake is called Toba which means beautiful bathing place. A high pressure to the surface by the magma which had not been released during the explosion formed Samosir Island.
