From the Resort, you head off to the Pasar Beriman. It is the biggest local market in the Minahasa area, selling everything the people need. As the people from Minahasa Area eat everything, and we really mean everything, you will may find some shocking offers at the market. If you would like to avoid these areas of the market, please tell the guide.
After the market, you get back in the car and drive up to the Volcano Mahawu. You will walk around the top, which takes about 1 hour and enjoy the great view of the small crater lake. Next stop is Tondano Lake where you will have lunch. During lunch enjoy the serenity of the lake and its surrounding hills. As not all lakes are the same, we drive to Lake Linow, which changes colors depending on the sunlight. There we serve coffee and tea.
Afterwards you will visit the small village of Woloan where you can see how the traditional Minahasa-style houses are built. The last stop on the tour will be at the Buddhist Temple of Pagoda, the most important praying place for Buddhism in North-Sulawesi. On the way, back to the Resort, you can ask the driver to stop at some souvenir shops.
