Sipiso Piso Waterfall, Kabanjahe

#3 of 20 in Parks in North Sumatra
Waterfall Nature / Park
Look down at Sipiso Piso Waterfall, the tallest waterfall in Indonesia, pouring from a hole in the cliff face and plunging 120 m (360 ft) to the ground below. Observe this natural wonder from a viewpoint above the cascade, then descend the winding staircase to the base of fall, where thundering water crashes down, spraying you with a fine mist. The name of the waterfall comes from the local word for knife, referring to its slender blade-like shape.

  • Its height is 120 m. Unique waterfall that gives him start an underground river flowing under the Karo plateau. At the entrance, too, it seems there are some symbolic payment of about 4 000 IDR/person. Look very nice-as if in grief opened tap on full power and water gushed out of the mountain. But on the observation deck was not very neat. It would be good to come closer to the waterfall, there are stairs to descend down, but we didn't have time for that-descent and ascent took three hours and. .. But we are glad that simply though from afar saw this miracle of nature. There you can go to another observation deck overlooking the Lake Toba.
