We are travellers on bicycles and stayed at Samosir Island which is situated on the lake itself. On day 2 we decided to explore the island and its surrounding areas. We did this by renting a scooter from the resort since it is a large area and we needed to go to Tele which is 60km distant from the place we stayed at, Tuk Tuk.
The lake itself is actually a crater, it was formed when the moutain blew up thousands of years ago and thus it is surrounded by beautiful ridges of mountain top edges. Best photo opportunity of the lake would be from the western side of Toba. The road to Tele was simply awesome. I share here pictures, mostly set to Dynamic Arts settings.
