Minahasa Countryside




8 hours


This trip is private; included guides and transportation are for you and your group only.
Departure time may be flexible depending on the visit/activity and prices usually depend on group size.
This activity is unavailable for booking at the moment.

You will visit Minahasa, the hinterlands of Manado. The first stop is Tinoor and Inspiration Hill, then visit Linow Lake (a lake of changing colors) and the famous Tondano Lake. You will then visit Sawangan with its large collections of ancient sarcophagus or "Waruga." Varying in age, the oldest reportedly dates back as far as 900 AD.

The Waruga, as they are called, consist of two distinct parts: the hollowed-out square or rectangular base, and a roof-like lid into which some have carved scenes depicting the life, and sometimes death, of the occupant.  Surrounded by gnarled frangipani trees, this can be an eerie place, especially when you consider that the dead were not buried underground but merely placed inside the vessel in a fetal position squatting atop a china plate.
