31st JANUARY 2017 ~ One of the must-visit sites in Medan is Sipiso-piso Waterfall. Sipiso-piso in Indonesia means "like a knife" ("piso" is "pisau" in Malay language). It is formed by an underwater river and which then cascades and flows in Lake Toba.
You could just observe Sipiso-piso from the spot where all the tourist buses stop but to get a better view, people would have to walk down (and later up) the steep and high tracks. We just went 3/4 of the route to see Sipiso-piso closer. Thank God my two other companions were not adventurous or pushy to force me to go down further to the river. Why did I have to this climbing activity every time I go on holiday? *sigh*
|can you see Lake Toba?|
The scenery would have been more beautiful if the sky was clear, as we could see Lake Toba from afar. It was still foggy so there was a thick veil that blocked our view and it drizzled a bit too. We were just too tired climbing but that should be a good (physical) exercise once in a while.
