It is obviously one of the top interesting places highlights around Samosir Island Lake Toba north Sumatra tourism.

Huta means a tiny viilage and Siallagan itself is one of hundreds clans in Batak tribe. Huta Siallagan is a charming preserved area of the legendary King Siallagan, who ruled his clans about hundreds of years ago with its unique settlement courtyard. This area is still occupied by king and his descendants in the village at the Bolon house (traditional Batak Toba houses).
Huta Siallagan is surrounded by stone walls as its fortresses to prevent attacks from enemies or other warring tribes and bamboos as fences or barrier from wild animals. A single narrow entrance is the only access to enter into its historical site of Batak culture village which is guarded by 2 statues.
