Get Around

Visitors can take boat around the lake for only Rp 50.000 (about 5 US Dollar) but the boat usually waits till it has 10 passengers.
In the middle of the lake is a small island called Pulau Likri. Unfortunately, you cannot stop at the island because the boat follows a different  route. In addition, you can also see the local community catch Nike fish using nets that resemble a spoon held by bamboo sticks on either side.
Several bamboo constructions stretching out into the lake are suitable for relaxing while enjoying the lake’s waters.

Get There

From Tomohon to Lake Tondano it takes a one hour’s drive through winding roads. Use your own car or take public transportation from Manado or Tomohon.
