What Visitors Say
“If you go to Silalahi, this place is a shame if you don’t stop by. Because the location is not so far from the shores of Lake Toba. The waterfall has several levels. If you are lazy to bathe in the lake, you can also take a bath here. Even cooler.” Afadh Asdi (Source)
“The waterfall is great, the view is really good, I accidentally found this waterfall, but it’s great Susana is beautiful.” Walid Alhasbi (Source)
“The waterfall is good, but the location around the waterfall is still small. Still rocks, if it’s crowded there, it will feel narrow. For those who want to swim, the bathroom (changing clothes) is not yet available.” Ricky Lolo (Source)
“In this place, you will feel the tranquility of nature that is still beautiful without the hustle and bustle of village or city life. The unspoiled forest with various animals such as birds can be heard along the way.” Kendhil (Source)
“The depth of the lake under the level four waterfall is about five meters. So, for visitors who don’t know how to swim, we recommend that you don’t try to swim.” Bona (Source)
