MATAPANGANDARAN- Lake Toba is one of the beautiful volcanic lakes in Indonesia. This lake has an area of ​​​​1.145 square kilometers, this lake looks like an ocean at an altitude of 900 m above sea level. In addition to being the largest lake in Southeast Asia, this lake is also the deepest lake in the world with a depth of up to 450 m.

Lake Toba is surrounded by pine forests and several waterfalls as well as warm water baths in the forest. The scenery around the lake is also very beautiful with the cool air making visitors who come will feel at home to linger here.

In addition to being a beautiful natural tourist spot, this lake is believed by the Batak people to be the exact residence of the seven goddesses of the Batak tribe or commonly called Namborru. Every time there will be activities around the lake, the Batak people will pray and ask permission first so that the event gets blessings and runs smoothly.

It is said that this lake was formed from a family of fish ghosts, long ago there was a man who was fishing in the river and then managed to get it. But it turned out that the fish was not an ordinary fish but a beautiful girl named Toba, he begged the man not to cook it.

Long story short they got married on the condition that no one should know about who Toba really is. They are also blessed with a child who is always hungry named Samosir. One day Samosir was assigned to deliver lunch to his father, but he ate in the middle of the road because he was hungry.

When the father came home hungry and found Samosir eating his lunch, the father was furious and said that Samosir was a fish child. Instantly the sky darkened and it rained heavily. Toba and Samosir suddenly disappeared when the village became a sea of ​​water.

However, from a scientific point of view, Lake Toba is a volcanic lake formed by the eruption of Mount Toba thousands of years ago. The volcanic eruption formed a giant caldera or crater which was then filled with water until it became a lake like it is today.
