Danau Poso, Tentena

4.3
#2 of 15 in Parks in Central Sulawesi
Lake Poso is a lake in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, and the third-deepest lake in Indonesia.The town of Pendolo is situated at the southern end of the lake, the town of Tentena is located at the northern end, while a number of smaller villages dot the shoreline. The lake drains into the Poso River at Tentena, which flows into the Molucca Sea at the town of Poso.EcologyThe lake contains various fish, including the eel Anguilla marmorata which migrates between the lake and the sea, and 11 fish species that are endemic to the lake, notably buntingi ricefish, gobies, and the halfbeak Nomorhamphus celebensis. These endemics are all highly threatened; in some cases possibly already extinct. One of the reasons for the drastic decline of the native fish are introduced, non-native species, particularly Mozambique tilapia and common carp.

  • My childhood was spent in this place before eventually moving the venue because of work. Very fun if you're playing every day and bathing place. The water is clear, save a million charm but a million mysteries therein. It saves the tranquility and comfort. When you come from the city's busy and full of pollution. try to see the break of the afternoon or the day e.g., while enjoying a glass of coffee and banana fritters. The favour once ... .... Try again the satrapies specialties "Arogo Onco" or similar spices typical of Poso that gives the scent if cooked with meat or fish. Hmmm so hungering.. well never mind so like to go home hometown hehe
