Toledo Inn Samosir Sumatra Indonesia


      Toledo Inn Samosir Sumatra Indonesia

We visited Toledo Innn on Samosir in 2017. In the breakfast room we were very surpised to see locals sit there and singing som songs. Toledo Inn has welcomed guests and dignitaries since 1978. Each guest rooms offers stunning views of a little tropical gardens or vistas of the Lake Toba from the terrace or balcony. Its location on a beautiful Tuktuk, part of Samosir Island. At 640 square kilometres (247 sq mi), Samosir is the largest island within an island, and the fifth largest lake island in the world. . Samosir Island is located in Lake Toba, a large crater lake in northern Sumatra. At 630 square kilometres – slightly smaller than Singapore – Samosir is the world’s largest island within an island. The island was born of a pair of dramatic prehistoric volcanic events, and was technically a peninsula until 1906, when the Dutch dug a canal through the narrow isthmus that attached it to the mainland. Today Samosir is the perfect location for a stress-free holiday in a gorgeous highland setting among the friendly Batak people. The cool air, laid back pace of life and absence of crowds form a welcome respite from the heat and commotion you normally encounter in Indonesia. You can see the island’s unique and fascinating Batak heritage in its clusters of traditional houses with roofs that curve upwards like buffalo horns, white-washed churches that dot the landscape, and ancient stone tombs and monuments. The breathtaking, unspoilt countryside with its steep, pine-covered slopes that descend into the deep blue water, and wide views in every direction will clear your mind and ensure that your stay on Samosir relaxes you completely.
