A day of breathtaking scenery heading through the hilltop town of Tomohon, known locally as the “city of flowers” sits in a saddle between two volcanoes Mt. Lokon and Mt. Mahawu. Our first visit is to the Local Market sells vegetables, rats, bats and dogs (ingredients in the notorious local cuisine). Then you will hike to Mahawu Volcano (1490 meters above sea level), Inside the crater is a steaming, emerald-green lake ringed with yellow sulphur deposits. From the summit you can see neighbouring Mount Lokon with its ever-present plume of smoke. On the clear day you can also see both the Sulawesi sea on the west and to the Maluku sea to the east. On the way up will see the variety of the terraced vegetable gardens. Then your trip continues to lake Tondano where a delicious lunch will be served at a local restaurant. From here you will drive to sulphurous lake Linow near Lahendong Village and your last stop at Woloan village to see the center of Minahasa wooden house building, back to your hotel in Manado.
