This is an island. In a lake. In an island. It is Lake Toba, in Northern Sumatra. It takes about 6 hours to go around it on a moped. It is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The lake was formed by a volcanic explosion thousands of years ago, so the sides of the lake are often vertiginous rocky drops. It's amazing. And so near the equator I got sunburned there in 15 mins flat. But if you get the chance. GO!
