Sipiso-piso is located at the north tip of Tao Toba (Tao = Lake in batak). It is one of the established wisata (tourist) location at Danau Toba (Lake Toba) . As an establish location, souvenir and food shop is abundance here. Among the main tourist attraction here is the beautiful panorama view of the lake from here and also the 360 ft high (around 120m) Sipiso piso waterfall. The long and narrow waterfall drops 360 feets into the impressive gorge below and flow towards the lake. You will need at least 30 minutes to trek down to the waterfall bottom and around 45 minutes to an hour to trek up back along the cemented trail provided.

The panoramic view from here is simply breathtaking. Another thing to note is that the wind is very strong. No wonder Sipiso piso is also listed as a place for paragliding activity apart from Huta Ginjang.
