Our trip is visit the natural park of Eden 100. In this day, I accompanied by my friend during attended campus, Edelo and my Uncle Bondan. Still, we were here ushering Joceline and Adam, Canadian couple who want to reveal the hidden paradise in North Sumatra besides Lake Toba. So for little information, park of Eden 100 is a Natural Park, located in Lumban Julu, Tobasa. To reach this location out, its need around 30 minutes trip using car from Parapat or 5 hours from Medan/Kualanamu Airport, via Sumatra road.
We have reach the location out.
We came from Tuktuk, cross the lake by boat, meet Edelo in Tigaraja, and then together proceed to park of Eden 100. The time shows 10:30 AM. We greeted by local guard. The ticket price is IDR 5 K (USD 0.37) for local/domestic tourist, and IDR 10 K (USD 0.74) for foreigner.
The first spot which we stop by was small natural waterfall.
It called “Air Terjun Dua Tingkat”. Only need fifteen minutes to reach this spot out from the welcome gate. We spent less than one hour in this spot, before we started visit other spots. In 11.10 AM, we went to The Tree House. Not literally, natural tree house after all, but this is a decent one to aim our objectives. We could see all the park from the high.
Edelo, Uncle Bond and I stay in the tree house, but not with this Canadian couple. They spotted a black
monkey, which they never saw before, not far from tree house. They climbed the tree house down,
and tried to chase the monkey. Apparently, they never can get the picture of the monkey and back
to tree house. Not far from tree house, there was a wide yard, which usually aim for camping stuff.
We take our lunch there, in 01:00 PM. After lunch we visited several spot strawberry garden, tracking spot and camping spot with river around those.
Park of Eden 100 is one of natural tourism spot in the region of Lake Toba. The reachable ticket price, good guard, the beauty of nature, forest shades, we can get all of those in this park. For every traveller who want to enjoy a decent camping or the nature shades in the forest, the park of Eden 100 is the best place if you were in North Sumatra.
Around three o’clock, we’re leaving the park, heading off to Marom, my village, my home. We greeted by local folks, and absolutely my parents. My parents prepared four kilos Mujahir (freshwater fishes) which she fried and grilled for our dinner. Meanwhile, I invited them to Lumban Toga, the best place in my village to enjoy nature and Lake Toba. Joce and Adam were excited about the spot. We spent around one hour here and back to my home. But, before we’re home, we stopped by in the traditional pub which serve jungle juice. We enjoyed the dusk by jungle juice and
interesting stories. Edelo is very good in English, and know many things about cultures, habits, or
films of the western. He is a good addition for our trip and make the Canadian couple more comforted.
In the night, we take dinner and what we had through were worth at all.
A long day full of adventure, we completed it with fried and grilled fishes dish. The Canadian couple were happy for
the trip and they slept when the time show eleven PM.
