You want to feel a sensation by standing on the above of the lake and then disappeared in the mist. You can feel the sensation of this twin lakes in the district Solok, West Sumatra. Why are so-called twin lakes?. It caused there are two adjacent lakes, Di Eteh Lake (above) and the lake below. Called the Twin Lakes area, because the two lakes, namely Lake Di Eteh (Above) and Lake Below is located alongside the distance is only about 300 meters. But, it needed more than 1 hour to reach it since you must rotate the direction. Besides that, name of this two lakes that contradicts based on its location, often make visitors ask why the lake is located on a hill called Lake Below, whereas under the hill or down the road called Lake Di Eteh (Above).
But, no one knows until you see it for yourself.
The lake is located in the district that is in Alahan Panjang. Di Eteh lake was in the street side-Muara Padang Labuh while the other was located in the hill villages Sileh Lembang Jaya district. To reach this area is very easy. From the Singkarak lake, you just follow the rural road and spend your time around 1 hour. You can see the Bukit Barisan highlands while getting there.

The best spot of Di Eteh (above) lake is in Gumati Valley. Which is one of the most beautiful sight and seeing at Di Eteh (above) lake. It’s quite place, windy and good for meditation. But, many couple were getting a date here. hooollaaa.
Eventough there are many villa on this Gumati Valley, but the conditions are not maintained. Big problem and a common in local government. If you have much time, there’s no way to return tour lake trip. Continue and see the Below lake is an advantagde. Unfortunatelly for me. But, only for information, that Below lake is at an altitude 1566 masl. That is, the surface of the water as high as the bottom of the water of Lake Above. However, the lake has an area of ??16.90 square meters, length of 5.62 km and 3.00 km wide is very deep, which is 886 meters. But, some local people say this lake is sanctified. Then it makes, not many people are coming to this Below lake. Besides that, you can not go around on Below lake. Even, touch your hands or feet into the water.
