Legend of Samosir Island North Sumatra Tour
The legend and the island of Samosir is indeed something that cannot be separated, especially about its formation. You must still remember the Toba and carp tales right? It is said that the island in the middle of Lake Toba was the manifestation of a child named Samosir. He was the son of an indigenous man named Toba and a beautiful woman incarnated goldfish, which was discovered by Toba and made his wife.
The lives of the three were initially fine, until one day Samosir was late in delivering lunch to Toba in the fields. Toba was angry and broke his promise, calling Samosir “a fish child”. Long story short, the beautiful woman incarnated the fish was furious when she found out Toba broke her promise. He asked Samosir to go up the hill near there, then turn into a fish and enter the river again.
As soon as the river overflowed, there was a flood that sank Toba. The place to sink Toba is now with Lake Toba, while the place of Samosir escaped known as Samosir Island.
While in science, the island of Samosir is an island that formed a massive volcanic eruption around 69000 to 77000 years ago. The combination of legend and natural science about the formation of Samosir Island is what attracts many tourists to come.
