The view is great, and by paying the entrance fee you are given a choice of free coffee or tea. It's great for friends or family to have a long chat as there is a medium sized restaurant facing the lake. The road to the lake wasn't really well paved, but the view was worth the distance I guess :)... More

I got to this lake on last weekend, it's cozy, calm, and enjoyable short trips. Only one hour drive from manado so you can visit it anytime you like. The colors of the water changing from time to time because of the sulfur activities. This place is pretty nice to recharge your soul

A quiet place, with a well designed restaurant cum bar facing some sulphur fissure areas. Vapours and birdlife abound. At one edge of Tomohon, reachable by bus.

It's a very popular attraction in Tomohon, very crowded on the weekend. We went there on Sunday afternoon last time and couldn't even get in because it was full. Then we came again on Tuesday afternoon, not that many people were there perhaps due to it was raining. You paid Rp. 25,000 per person and the ticket could be exchanged... More

The Lake Linau is natural lake in Manado, the air still fresh and a very nice place to relax and stress relief from daily routines. Worth to visit.

It has 3 different kind of green colour. It is surrounded by jungles. You can trekking. But you should be careful about snakes. You must see nighttime by the way. There are light and smoke on the origin of sulphur. Consequently you sould see.☺️

This lake is near Tomohon, around one and a half hour from Manado. It is less famous than Tondano, but I think this lake is more beautiful than Lake Tondano. The area is still very green, surrounding by trees. The blue sky reflects on the water make the lake colorful. There is a small restaurant and we can enjoy light... More

A short distance from Tomohon, we arrived at this lake. Under the sun, the multi color of different hues of emerald was amazing. Dark, and darker, light, and lighter. It is similar to the Emerald Lake in Yukon, Canada. The smell of sulphur lingered in the air, and we can see some burst of gas/water at the other side of... More

Not sure what the appeal of this lake is. We went there twice, it was overcast on both occasions, so there were no special colors. It is just a small lake where once cannot even walk around it.
