Danau Toba Transportation: 11 reviews and 24 photos

Lake Toba and Samosir Island are not so well connected to the rest of Sumatra, or better say, the streets are so in bad conditions, that every connection is so in delay and the rought is so long...

But this could also be seen in the ?adventure point of view?.

I took a night bus from Lake Toba to Bugittingi, that should be expected to arrive in 10 hours (ultra super duper delux) but at the end I spent 15 hours to get there.

The ?Super duper bus? was wwith aircondition and I was wearing a shorts, after let?s say a couple of hours, the aircond became cold water and it starts to fall form the roof to my head...it was sooooo unbelievebale...

But what you wanna complain?! Com?on...

Moreover when the bus driver takes a stop around middnight to let us smoke a cigarette in the middle of the rain forest!

It was simply bneautifull, no one light, no one sound, only peace!! It was great!

I could suggest you this agency, altough it is easier to walk through the viollage and check them out (also the GH are able to issue the tickets...easier but a little bit more expensive...):
