Paropo combines the views of a beach on Lake Toba and the surrounding hills. The scenery is still natural, and the air is still fresh. Camping activities are popular among visitors who look for the sensation of living in harmony with nature. Enjoy the special moments of nature’s beauty at sunset and sunrise, and relax in between the two. Paropo is a suitable location for fishing, too.
Silahi Sabungan District is a geosite within the Toba Caldera Geopark. The cliffs and rocks in the area are an essential element of the park.
What to Expect
If you want to fish, bring your fishing equipment from home because it is hardly available around Paropo. If you stay at Balige, Tongging, Parapat, or other towns, buy it there before leaving for Paropo.
