Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Home of sweeping views and small but thriving fish farms, Lake Maninjau remains a peaceful place, despite its popularity with foreign tourists. Formed by a volcanic eruption some 50,000 years ago, this caldera lake sits about 460 m (1,500 ft) above sea level. To reach the lake, take a bus from Bukittinggi. The scenic journey takes visitors down a narrow road making 44 hairpin bends before it reaches the lakeshore. Experience the area on a bicycle, or speed through the lush lakeside surroundings on a motorcycle. If you prefer slower activities, take a canoe trip across the lake. Make Lake Maninjau a centerpiece of your Padang vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Padang vacation trip planner.
