Visually Tanjung Unta is very special. He seemed trapped in the waters of Lake Toba. Especially when the sun goes down, the light that emanates from behind the headland feels very peaceful. For local residents, this object which is close to Sipolha Horison is the best place for refreshing in the afternoon.

What to Expect

The road to the area is paved but broken at some places. Rent a motorbike if you wish to see around after you have settled. During the dry season, many irresponsible land burners reduce the beauty of this volcanic lake.
