Traditional dancing at Simanindo

"Tortor" - Traditional dance for the Batak

Simanindo is situated on the northern tip of Samosir Island, Lake Toba, Sumatra, Indonesia. Visit traditional Batak dances (tortor) at Huta Bolon, just next to the road and also nearby the lake (so you can also go by boat). Especially "Sigalegale" dance is very nice to watch. A wooden puppet representing a deceased son is moved by strings.

There is also a little museum with some very nice ancient Batak artifacts. In a beautiful traditional village surrounded by earth walls with bamboo on top, you can watch a very nice dancing performance. You can take some very nice pictures here, don't miss out!

Performances (about 45 minutes):
Monday-Saturday: Start on 10h30. 2nd performance starts on 11h45.
Sunday: Start 11h45.

Not only did we really enjoy the stay, friendly staff and good food at Carolina, also did we receive great help when after leaving we realized we forgot several items that were returned to us by the staff - up to Medan airport! Thank you so much, Carolina staff, we were very lucky with you! And yes, I definitely recommend people to go to Lake Toba and stay here: best price-quality deal of our Indonesia trip!
