TANGKOKO NATURE RESERVE
This Nature Reserve is located on an open grassland and is home to a great variety of flora and fauna. There are monkeys Black macaca nigra, Cuscus and Hornbill birds. But special interest is given to the Tarsius Monkeys which sneak out at dawn and dusk. About the size of a childs fist, these tiny monkeys are the smallest in the world and a delight to see. The reserve is located north of Bitung and covers an area of 3,196 hectares. The day out is perhaps strictly for the adventurous amongst you as the road is rough and the 2 hour trip rugged, but for those prepared to make the journey, the delights of the jungle await you.
Mount Mahawu (1490 meters above sea level), another of three active volcanoes in the area. 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.
Small, highly sulphurous lake of 35 ha which bubbles at the edges and has steam jets. The lake’s colours changes depending upon the light and viewing perspective it shades of light blue, green, turquoise, etc. Large lake’s birds and beautiful small songbirds can sometimes be seen in the area a fairy tale environment! On a clear day you can take a picture of the lake view itself with Mt. Lokon in the backround, interesting!
