Danau Toba Caldera is the latest entry into the list of 100 Geopark sites around the world.

With so far attributed to 23 countries, the UNESCO-supported natural heritage site conservation program has shorter list than the World Heritage Site, but it lays more emphasis on ecology and its correlation with social condition.

Danau Toba is Indonesia’s second caldera after Mount Batur that join the Global Geoparks Network.
