Sipiso-piso is one of many wonderful waterfalls in North Sumatera. There are actually many others which are hidden behind the thick woods in North Sumatera. Fortunately, this splendid three hundred and sixty feet waterfall positions close enough to the road passed by travelers that it’s worth and easy visiting.

It’s not difficult at all to find this gorgeous waterfall. It lies between Parapat and Berastagi, two most visited tourism resorts in North Sumatera. Visitors starting from Parapat will need around two and half hours to get to this waterfall which is half way to get to Berastagi, the fruit paradise in North Sumatera. And it takes only less than five minutes from the road to get into the resort. Yet contribution from visitors is highly demanded to get into this tourism resort that is an average of five thousand rupiahs per person.

Near the waterfall, the local government has built such kind of comforting places for visitors and tired travelers. They can just sit and enjoy the spectacular sparkling fall of Sipiso-piso or go shopping around for some distinctive souvenirs. One may find pleasure going down to the very lowest fall of the water. Yet, he must be aware of how tiring it will be to climb up, back to the surface for he must climb up the hundreds of stairs he has passed going down before.

This lovely waterfall is one most loved treasure in North Sumatera. Its fame issipiso-piso even more complete for its very attachment to Lake Toba. One will always be able to enjoy the beauty of Lake Toba when looking at Sipiso-piso waterfall. Its water flows to the Lake passes a small village named Tongging and reaches part of the huge Lake Toba known as Tao Silalahi.

Maybe its not the most beautiful or the largest waterfall in the world but its worthed to visit. Your can see in the picture at the right side, the cheerful of the visitor that came to sipiso-piso waterfall.  See you there.. ;)
