He mentioned, from the seven waterfalls, only Sitalang Waterfall had been managed by youths and was visited by many local residents. At the location there are also food and beverage stalls. While six other waterfalls have not been managed because there is no access road to the location.
"There is no access road to the location, so there has been no visit by local tourists to that location," he said.
In the future, he hoped that the local government will develop the tourist destination, thereby increasing income for the local residents.
With the attractions, the public can sell food and drinks in the area.
"We are ready to support the development of attractions, so that the community's economy will improve," he said.
