'''Lake Maninjau''' is a large crater lake in [[West Sumatra]], [[Indonesia]] with several villages bordering it. It is a great place to relax, experience local rural lifestyle and watch the sunsets. The lake also supports swimming, canning and fishing. The villages themselves are small and great for escaping the hectic pace of Indonesia.
If you took the bus then there is not much to see when you arrive in front of the lake. If you have a motorbike, then you can go around the lake and enjoy the landscapes, it takes 2-3 hours. There are some possibilities for trekking. Lake Maninjau is deceptively cool. Bring sunblock.
* There's a nice waterfall by the mosque to the north of town Maninjau, but be careful, the steep way up can be slippery and small leeches can find their way to you. The way takes about 30 minutes.
