Medan to Toba in 45 minutes

Normally, people come to Toba Lake using bus or car. Trip form medan to parapat will spend around 4 to 5 hours. Even all the tiredness is noting compare to the view that offered by Toba Lake, it still a quite long trip. Now it’s not a matter anymore, by spend a little bit more money, around 200 – 500 thousands IDR, we can enjoy the view of toba lake in just 30 minutes trip. how?

Now, there is another transportation alternative that we can use to access toba area. Plane, transportation service provided by Susy Air, we can take a flight from polonia airpot in medan, to silangit airport in siborong-borong. The flight trip will take around 45 minutes. For some people who prefer to have a quick trip even have to spend little bit more money instead of using other public transportation that cheaper with tiredness and long boring trip as a “bonus”, this is the right choice.

From silangit airport that located in siborong-borong, we can use public transportation (bus, minibus) or chartered car, to go to any place around toba, Balige, Parapat, Samosir, even sibolga or tarutung. This is definitely the right choice for you who want to go to toba with a short time trip just 45 minutes, arrived right in the middle of toba area, and it’s relatively cheap.

    hi josephnoel

    since you ask for the cheapest way to trevel to lake toba maybe i can suggest this..
    from medan, you can take the bus, usually it departs hourly from amplas bus terminal, it will cost you about 20K Rupiah.
    with that bus you will be arrived in parapat or ajibata, from there, you can take the boat to go to tuktuk (samosir island) or stay in parapat.

    hope it helps

    baru check website nya ternyata susi air cuman terbang 1x sehari ke Silangit… wah musti nginep dong ya… ada rekomendasi hotel yg murmer?

    how much will it cost to rent a car to go around toba… what’s ur suggestion for the best transportation to do that?

    rencana lokasi ngenepnya dimana pak/bu? kalau di tuktuk-samosir saya bisa rekomendasikan carolina, samosir cottage, dan banyak yang lain.

    to go around toba, i suggest u rent a car, but its relatively difficult to get a rent car. Probably, the easiest way is to ask the hotels for a car to rent, usually they have one or two.

    Hi, glad to know this website. There is too little information abt Lake Toba in the web.
    Do you have any recommendation for car rental with driver at reasonable price?
    I don’t see much choices in the web.

    i have to admit, its little bit difficutl to find car rental especially for reasonable price, because, i dont know what price is reasonable to you, but you can recomend Tobali travel or Raja Taxi, you can ask informations about it as soon as you arrived in polonia air port medan, (i assume you travel by plane).
