Mount Lokon Trekking

Visiting Tomohon will be very much interesting to do a hike on a volcano. Mount Lokon is a volcano as high as 1580 from sea level. It is a stratovolcano, which means the volcano was born and grow from volcanic materials that lay on each other. It is an active volcano in North Sulawesi, and is located at the North West side of Tomohon. This volcano has a very unique picturesque scenery.

Sunrise Trekking to Tompaluan Crater

Sun rise from Mount Lokon

One activity very interesting to do while climbing mountain is to see the breaking of the day, especially sun rise. This is the time when we can see the color of the sky gradually change from dark stary night to orange golden and lastly bright blue morning. Tompaluan crater is one of the best spot to enjoy this moment. Experiencing on being near the crater and waiting for the sun to start rising. The experience is total reversion of the sunset. The existence of cloud sometimes sweeten the picture, however the challange is only when it is too thick, the still shine, but the color of the sky becomes graish blue or whitish grey. The siluet of towering mount Mahawu on the opposite side beautifies the view of the sun rise.

Observing the Crater after Sunrise

Volcano is one of the most amazing place on earth to observe beside rain forest, coral reef and culture. During the visit to Tompaluan crater we are able to observe the rocks such as basalt, rhyolite, obsidian, pumice, andesite or even the sulfuric materials that is created during the process of eruption. As the volcano grows, many rocks were contrived. Layers of volcanic materials are very visible and easily to be recognized on the wall of the lava river. Scholars says that each layer represent a period of eruption.
