Travel from San Francisco to Jakarta, Indonesia! Then onto Sumatra (also known as Sumatera).

Located in North Sumatera province, Toba Lake is the world’s largest volcanic lake. Here is the birthland of Batak, one of Indonesia’s indigenous people.

We learned about Batak cultures and tradition at TB Silalahi Center and Batak Museum, which are next to each other at the south shores of the incredible Toba Lake.

This is part of Trip of Wonders 2017 hosted by Ministry of Tourism Indonesia.
