4 Days in Lake Toba, World’s Largest Volcanic Lake

North Sumatra is the site of Earth’s largest known supervolcano eruption in at least 25 million years. It spewed out ashes reaching as far as Africa and left behind a huge crater twice the size of Singapore, which became known as Lake Toba today.

The massive eruption has also reshaped the region into a province of beautiful highlands 13.5 million people call home.
