Lake Toba is estimated to occur when the explosion about 73.000-75,000 years agoand is a supervolcano Eruption (super volcano). Bill Rose and Craig He from Michigan Technological University estimated that the volcanic materials spewed out the mountain as much as 2,800 KM3, with 800 KM3 of rock ignimbrit and 2,000 KM3 of volcanic ash which is estimated to be blown to the West for 2 weeks. The wind-blown volcanic ash has spread to half of the Earth, from the Chinese get to South Africa. Eruptions have occurred for 1 week and pebbles while letting the ashes were 10 km above sea level.

This incident causes mass death and in some species also followed the extinction. According to some of the DNA evidence, it had also made a number of humans to about 60% of the total human population of the Earth at that time, amounting to about 60 million people. The eruption also caused the onset of ice ages, although experts still argue it compellingly.

After the explosion the caldera was formed, which is then filled in by water and became now known as Lake Toba. The pressure up by magma that haven't come out led to Samosir island.
