Be very close to endemic wildlives of Sulawesi


North Sulawesi hosts endemic animals such as Tarsiers (Tarsius Spectrum), Black Crested Macaque (Macaca Nigra), Cuscus, Red Knob Hornbill, Maleo Birds, King fishers, Snoring Rails, Timor Deer, Babi Rusa, Flying Lizard, Chicada and many more. Most of the animals can be seen in Tangkoko Nature Reserve, since it has become a sanctuary for both flora and faunas of Northern Peninsula of Sulawesi.

Meanwhile, in the other area of the region is a-1331m volcano towering on the east side of Tomohon. The volcano is accesible by car to the crater, whilst from this volcano is visible the Caldera of Tondano, a big giant crater that was created by a massive eruption on the early age of pleistocene as the process of the formation of the peninsulas. Thus around this volcano are many farmlands and on some part have hot spring and a lake with changing color phenomena. A natural phenomena that is very rare to see anywhere else in the world.

A Recent Review of this tour

Both guide and driver have done a proper job showing my husband and myself what they believe is worthwhile and moreover what we feel is worth spending our time with as they understood the 8 days should be tailorfit to our wishes\ideas. Once more, we had a great time with both and I can believe we have become friends in a way. Wish Mario and Guino the best. Keep up the good work! Best wishes also from my husband.
