Banda Aceh to Lake Toba

Posted by Digitarius on 24/7/2019 at 10:32

I am planning a trip to Aceh in Sumatra, from there travel to Lake Toba and who knows where from there. I am in Yogyakarta now so plan on going to Aceh in August sometime. Anyone made that trip or can offer some advice or direction, much appreciated.

Bus or fly, both via Medan would be the approach I’d take.

If going by bus, you could get a night bus from Banda Aceh to Medan and then continue straight on from there to Lake Toba —I'm not aware of direct buses between the two.

Thanks for the info! I find Lake Toba very intriguing but will have to postpone our plans to this place next time. Fingers crossed we could do Bali this year. Keep safe everyone.

Hi, My name is Erik and i am 23 years old. 
I come from Denmark. 
I am looking for a monastery where i can stay under my healing process. 
I have been in a extreme pain for many years, and i found my healing throug meditation and yoga. 
Described in short terms, has my body been in pain because i in my mind my hole life has been in a constantly state of fear, and my body has reacted by a freeze condition. 
To come through this, i have to get stronger, live the right way and be diciplined. 
That is why i am now looking for a monestary in Asia or europe to stay for about 7-8 months.  
Doe to the corona virus it has been very difficult to find any monestary's. 
There fore i am very open to any opourtunity. 
I will off course be Vacinated befoer travel.
I hope you can help me, 
best regards
