Lut Tawar Lake

Lut Tawar Lake

Lut Tawar is the famous lake in Aceh. The Location is in Takengon, Aceh Tengah, Indonesia. I took this picture when I spent my holiday to this coffee town. Yeah, Aceh Tengah is also known with its Arabica coffee. Its about several years ago when I went to Takengon with my friend, Ami.

Lut is a short of Laut (sea) in Bahasa and tawar is tasteless. Lut Tawar looks like a sea because it covers all of Takengon city, but the taste of water is not salt. So that, Gayo people, the ethnics who live in Takengon called it Lut Tawar.
