Thank You for visiting our website and welcome to the exotic world of Sumatra’s Lake Toba!

Hidden in the North Sumatran Highlands is Lake Toba, one of the world’s largest and deepest crater lakes. Toba, a sleeping giant, is the only real supervolcano on earth, exploding every 300000 to 400000 years, according to scientists. The last eruption about 75000 years ago formed a crater that filled up with rainwater, Lake Toba. Situated 900 meters above sea level the climate is pleasant with lush and tropical vegetation. Local farmers of the Batak people use the perfect conditions to grow coffee, cocoa, vanilla, pineapple, avocadoes, candlenuts, and plenty of vegetables and other fruits.

The relatively cool climate of the area and the stress-free environment of the place attract many visitors from inside and outside the country. Since the early Seventies, Samosir Island in the middle of Lake Toba’s fresh waters is the main destination for foreign travelers. Romlan Guesthouse, situated in the village of Tuktuk, is a friendly place with only 12 rooms. Romlan Guesthouse offers a relaxed and disturbance-free atmosphere right at the shore of the lake with perfect swimming conditions on a private beach, breath-taking views, clean rooms, and a small restaurant with Western and local food.
