Lake Linau, Tomohon

#1 of 73 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.

  • Well people keep talking about this lake, Actually it's a lake with a sulfur and volcano environment, so if you're lucky then you can see the lake changing its color (well I'm not that lucky though). ...  more »
  • A decent place to spend time with friends or family. Once the lake Linow is styled and appear more modern and more beautiful and look more ready to receive visitors visit. With a meal in a more complete resto and diverse people add passion to come visit. Beautiful scenery makes you feel duduk2 and take pictures. Is a moment that can not be forgotten. Come visit Manado. Lake Linow is only about 1 hour from Manado.
