Solok, Prokabar — If you go to West Sumatra, Indonesia, then nature will deliver to an exotic area called Twin Lakes. Here the temperature is 14 to 23 degrees. In the morning or night, even in the afternoon, people swarm in sarong. Vegetable oil in a bottle, frozen. Coffee was served, it was cold for an instant. Rain will usually fall 146 days in a year. Every day the average sunlight can be felt for 6 hours.
The expanse of onion fields imparts beauty to the eyes. Not to mention the expanse of dewy tea gardens, the best selfie place. This is the government-owned Lake Kembar Tea Plantation, stretching over 605.18 hectares of land, located in Kayu Juo Village, Mount Talang.
A resort between two lakes, like taking you jumping off somewhere, so dazzling. The rights of the Twin Lakes, have one little brother named Lake Talang, is on the cheek of Mount Talang (2,597 masl). Twin lakes in Alahan Panjang are at 1,600 mpdl.
