siladen_mahawu_13The Minahasa region is formed by montains, hills, green valley and volcanoes (active and non-active). Some of them are possible to be explored during your stay at the Resort. All the guides have more than 15 years experience in trekking on volcanoes.

The elongated Mt. Mahawu volcano lies immediately east of Lokon-Empung volcano. It is the northernmost of a series of young volcanoes along a SSW-NNE line near the margin of the Quaternary Tondano caldera. It contains a crater lake with fumaroles and small geysers.

Mahawu is capped by a 180-m-wide, 140-m-deep crater that sometimes contains a small crater lake, and has two pyroclastic cones on its northern flank. Less active than its neighbor, Lokon-Empung, Mahawu’s historical activity has been restricted to occasional small explosive eruptions recorded since 1789. In 1994 fumaroles, mudpots, and small geysers were observed along the shores of a greenish-colored crater lake.

A surprisingly easy to climb Mt Mahawu is a must for those who love to see nature while enjoying a gentle climb towards the top. Our transfer will bring us to Tomohon Vegetable farms and that’s where we will start our ascent. From the base it will take us around a 1- hour trek to the lip of the crater. The breathtaking view will make you realize more of what scenic Manado has to offer: from the isles of Siladen, Bunaken, Manado Tua and the city of Manado. The “steamy“ lake and sulfur aroma will tickle both your visual and olfactory senses. Upon descending to the base we will proceed to a local restaurant for a sumptuous Minahasa style lunch. Stopping along the way for local handicrafts can be arranged upon request.
