Balige Market Sumatra – Indonesia
is situated at the far end, the south east, of Lake Toba. It is a fairly large town, not much to do, except for visiting the huge market in the centre of town. Much of the town is still built of wooden houses, yet, relative affluence is demonstrated by the large number of not-so-humble satellite dishes for television reception in town. The road that runs from Medan to Parapet on the West side of Lake Toba continues south to Balige.
