Traditional Batak House on Samosir Island - Sumatra

In the lake of Toba is the island of Samosir.

In Sumatra you see a lot of these great traditional houses. The roofs of these houses are formed like the waterbuffelo horns. Sometimes even a dubble horn on the roof. On Samosir this style is called Batak. It is a tribe house so several families live in there together.

It is still in use like that these days!!
