What’s Special

Humbahas hosts historical/cultural sites in the area, such as Bakkara Valley and Sisingamangaraja Palace. Both are central to Batak history. The valley stretches across four villages. It had been the center of the Batak empire until the Dutch captured its last king in 1907 during World War II. Sisingamangaraja was the title of the kings. “Sisinga” means a lion, and “mangaraja” means king.

Similarly, there is a spring called Aek Sipangolu, which has become famous since the 1950s. According to legend, a person with paraplegia recovered and was able to walk and climb trees again after bathing in the water. Not surprisingly, many people now use it as a medicine to cure various diseases.

Meanwhile, weather in Humbahas are friendly. At an altitude of 330-2075 meters (1000-6800 ft) above sea level, the area is cold most of the year. Further, the landscape is mostly hilly to make your trip a memorable experience, too. The slope of Humbahas land falls into three categories, namely 11% flat, 20% gentle, and 69% sloping/steep.

Finally, local people are also friendly. They grow up in eastern culture where everyone in the community is considered family. Agriculture, fisheries and tourism dominate their lives. In agriculture, their main products are onion, chili, tomato, coffee, and incense. Tilapia fish and other land water fauna are the typical product of their fishery. Tourism is obviously their day-to-day business to attract and keep visitors happy in Lake Toba.
