Samosir Island, Sumatra gay tourIndonesia is a country with over 13,000 individual islands. Sumatra is the country’s second largest island (after Java) and the sixth-largest island in the world. A range of mountains called the Bukit Barisan runs the entire 1,100-mile length of the island on its western side, providing a home for thick, tropical jungles and lush vegetation on their leeward side. Punctuating this landscape are numerous volcanoes, both extinct and active, and one – Toba – provided the planet with its most cataclysmic eruption ever 60,000 to 75,000 years ago! Toba now serves as the vessel for the world’s largest volcanic lake.
