Thank you for choosing this program, Lokon Mountain Trekking – duration of 7 hours
The Lokon mountain trekking program is a very light journey, you will be accompanied by a licensed guide namely “Indonesian Mountain Guides Association” (APGI).
Lokon is a twin volcano together with Empung Mountain and is located close to the pleasantly cool town of Tomohon city, which is surrounded by agricultural land. It settled in the northern Sulawesi, Indonesia, roughly 10 km south of Manado. Both rise above the Tondano plain and are among active volcanoes of Sulawesi. Mount Lokon has a flat and craterless top. Its active crater is located on its foot, named “Tompaluan” crater.
At all recent eruptions have originated from the Tompaluan crater which lies in the saddle between the two peaks. When most people say they climbing for Lokon, it means that they visited the crater and most guides will think you only want to go to the crater, instead of the top of it.
The route to reach Lokon Mt is mostly passing a dry river bed that is actually an old lava flow from the Mountain. This trip can be quite slippery because the surface is so smooth. It takes 2 to 3 hours to reach the Crater Lake from Tomohon. Most people stop at the crater rarely go to the summit, for a very good reason.
Your tiredness will disappear when you see views of the city of Tomohon, Mount Mahau, Mount Klabat, and the expanse of rice fields and plantations from the top of the Lokon.
Important: You are prohibited from going down the crater because it is very dangerous
