With an average temperature of 18 to 20 degrees Celsius, this town is sandwiched between Mount Lokon and Mount Mahawu, so it’s an extra favorite spot in North Sulawesi.
The most beloved spot here is definitely the unique Lake Linow with its ever-changing tricolors – Tosca green, deep rich blue, and yellowish-brown – depending on the sunshine and its effect on the phosphoric waters.
With a cup of a hot tea or black coffee, you’ll enjoy a soul-relishing date with gorgeous mother nature.
Another place that is just as charming is Bukit Doa (also known as the Prayer Cave).
You’ll be spoiled by the view of verdant green trees and grass that stretch on magnificently, with the backdrop of the majestic mountain and Tomohon City in the distance.
Travelers love this place for its outbound activities, such as the longest Flying Fox route in North Sulawesi, for gatherings with friends, and as an outdoor wedding venue.
Tomohon is often referred to as the Town of a Thousand Flowers (Kota Seribu Bunga) with extensive floral species flourishing in the cool weather.
Hence it’s not surprising that Tomohon hosts the Tomohon International Flower Festival, a flora festival of international standard showcasing flower-decorated parade cars, flower exhibitions, flower queen contests, and all kinds of traditional art shows!
