What’s Special at Tanjung Unta?

Tanjung Unta or Camel Cape is a small peninsula that looks like a resting camel on the town of Tigaras (1.5 hours north-west of Parapat), or 5 hours from Medan. It is a virgin area of thin pine forest. To see it on the map, click here.

What’s Special

This place features a bay with a peaceful natural scenery surrounded by forest. Pine trees are lush in this area. The trees, the cape shape, and green lake water will make you amazed. From this place, visitors can also see the forest around Lake Toba. Camel Cape is perfect for family vacations.

There are various activities you can do there. If you like camping, some areas near the peninsula are suitable for camping. You can also fish or just going around in the water using a boat. Canoeing (boating) and water skiing are also abundantly available for visitors. And all of the above comes of course with a green and beautiful landscape on the horizon.

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.
