Transport from Medan-Samosir

Transport from Medan-Samosir

I am going to be staying in Medan nearby Pekan Raya Sumatera Utara (PRSU) and so far have no clear picture on how to go from there to Pulau Samosir. If by Paradep taxi van, where to get them from? Is it a direct route?

And also, is it worth the journey to be staying at Lake Toba for only a night? (because of my flight). For example, to depart from Medan to Samosir in the morning and stay there for a night and the next day spend the daytime in Lake Toba area and at night make my way back to Medan.

Kindly advise. It’s my first time going to Medan!

The ‘Bagus Taxi style’ of share taxi will pick-up from hotel in Medan, book in advance, request preferred seat number.

One night only .. popular and common with weekend visitors from Medan.
