Where I Found Tranquil and gorgeous Lake

Maninjau is a vulcanic lake, formed by a vulcanic eruption. This lake is surrounded by hills and mountains where the place for peaceful and enjoy the quiet moment with the beauty of the lake view....

Maninjau is located in WEST SUMATERA not North Sumatera!
Its 2.5 hours by private car, and 3,5 hours by bus from pdang to Bukittinggi and then to Maninjau Lake.

To achieve this Lake, we must through kelok 44 (44 hairpin turns) and where the view of each hairpin turns really amazing! The lake on the right side, and paddies field of the left side, and the local people w/ their activity, the hill, the traditional house......
And you will agree with me when you come and see by yourself....:)


Mmmmmm.... its really great time while being here... fresh, all is green....


Its view from the hill before through the kelok 44..... where we can see all the lake....
