After our 5 nights in Bunaken Cha Cha and a boatrip of 45 minutes,we were welcome at Manado harbour by the Highland Resort driver where we slept 3 nights(see review below) located close to the Lokon and Empung twin volcanoes.These volcanoes rising about 800 mabove the tondano lake are among the most active volcanoes of Sulawesi.
Lokon ,the higher of the 2 has a flat,craterless top and was SHUT because of its high level of activity.The younger Empung has a 400 m wide crater,its last eruption occured in teh 18th century.
BUT the most active is the TOMPAWAN volcano which has a double crater situated in the saddle between the Lokon and the Empung.
