Lake Linau, Tomohon

4.0
#1 of 55 in Nature in Sulawesi
Hike around Lake Linau, featuring a high sulfur content responsible for the water's changing colors. Look for hues of green, blue, yellow, orange, and white on the surface, but remember that you cannot swim here. The lake's bottom drops quickly and the mud can be dangerous. Spend some of your time exploring the pine forest, soaking in the hot spring's sulfur baths, or relaxing in the nearby cafes.

  • A great place to enjoy your sunset beside the lake enjoying some meals with the windy weather. Can be a little crowded when the holiday season is near.  more »
  • The Lake contains sulfur but much larger and more lush with trees from which the crater white in West Java so it is worth a visit if only to Manado a few animals who can live there, like fish and ducks. Sadly ticket feels quite expensive though can be exchanged with coffee or milk coffee tea hot but atat more palatable when it is ditemanin by the fried banana so it fits with the mood and the air there
