Sipinsur Travel Park (or Taman Wisata Sipinsur) is a park on the Sipinsur hill on the south shore of Lake Toba. The park has an area of about 2 hectares (5 acres), grown-up pine trees, and a relatively flat grass landscape. Located at 1,213 meters (3,980 ft) above sea level, it presents the lake’s natural scenery overlooking Sibandang island. It is about 40 minutes from Silangit International Airport.

Sipinsur provides a different view of the beauty of Lake Toba. When standing on the edge of the park, you can see a much bigger picture of the lake than what you can see elsewhere in general, given that your position is on the hill. The blue lagoon looks wide from there, while Sibandang island looks small right in front of you. Further in the distance is Samosir island that looks asleep but displays its bluish color, apparently the reflection of the blue sky and blue lake water. It is suitable for those looking for tranquility. It is also ideal for a family vacation as it has a few playgrounds for kids. Sipinsur provides a unique view and experience, different from any other side of the lake.
