A stratovolcano that stands as an attractive landmark of the North Sulawesi province of Indonesia is a drive away from the city of Manado.

Multiple private tours operate to the mountain for a guided expedition, but the most non-touristy way of exploring the place is by hiking to the mountain!

Capped with 180 meter wide and 140 meter crater, this mountain is one of the most striking places to visit from Manado.

Mount Mahawu Reviews & Ratings

  • The most easy hiking trail in North Sulawesi, so much too see here, from the rare birds and plants, inactive crater, there's also mountainbike trail here. With elevation of 1200m above the sea level you can see Bunaken, Siladen, and Lembeh island from here if the weather is good.

  • A very beautiful scenery from the summit of Mahawu. The walk is quite easy to the summit, and you can also walk around the rim. When its clear, you can find a beautiful photo over the Bunaken and Manado Tua island

  • Worth the hike. Be sure to not go up where the boring stairs are :)

  • Too modest... need more point of interest surrounding that crater.

  • Although it is different from the white crater area of Ciwidey Bandung - its culinary route and tourism, the Mahawu Mountain crater is also the right tourist spot for tourists who like to see the beauty of nature, but do not want to climb too far. Only need to climb for ten minutes on a cemented and good staircase, to get to the mountain crater. Located not far from the Tomohon flower area, the Mahawu Mountain crater is the right choice if we are satisfied to take a walk in the flower garden and want to see the depth of the exotic crater. Concrete trails, cemented and trapped steps, make it easy for tourists to travel up. The scenery in the form of the crater of Mount Lokon, Mount Manado Tua, Bunaken Island, the city of Tomohon and Manado can be seen if tourists go around the path on the lower lip.
