i am looking the quickest way to get to Lake Toba (Tuk Tuk) starting from Kutakane.
can be possible in 1 day and get in the evening in TukTuk?
The quickest way would be with a private car and you will be on the road for 7 to 8 hours. The alternative is public transport and you should add some 3 to 4 hrs to your travelling time.
In my opinion the best route for you is: Kutacane, Sidikalang, Tele Hill, Pangururan, Simanindo, Tuk Tuk.
If you go for public transport start as early as you can as you possibly don’t want to get stuck in Sidikalang.
Enjoy the ride.
Kutacane to Tuk Tuk only day time pubic transport.
If I were in Kutacane .. the day before ask at the transport offices what time is the first ‘bus’ (can be small bus) to Sidikalang ? and Kabanjahe ? .. and with that information make your choice.
Kabanjahe to Simpang Dua have buses every 30 mins .. Simpang Dua to Parapat about the same frequency.
Via Sidikalang is shorter route but public transport to Tele and Pangururan not frequent.
Nothing wrong with overwintering in Sidikalang, nice climate, full-on market, good coffee and tuak at the Buffet Horas, amazing Catholic Church and the ok Hotel Angkasa Raya has wifi.
Sidikalang big town with lots of food. Might starve at Tele
