The Minahasa Highlands are best known for being home to various volcanic peaks that rise up to more than 1700 meters and the friendly natives. The region is rich in culture and history and also has an exquisite local cuisine. The highlands start at around 300 meters above sea level and go up to almost 600-700 meters that offer spectacular views of the volcanoes and mountains full of greenery. The region is starkly different from the beaches of North Sulawesi because of mostly pleasant weather throughout the day and cool nights. The natives of the Minahasa Highlands live in dainty wood-frame houses that make the residential areas look similar to European settlements.
Apart from the volcanic peaks, the highlands are also known for the various prehistoric above-ground burial sites and coffee and coconut plantations. Tourists can also enjoy the hot springs in the region and the highland lake Tondano along with terraced hillsides with orchid gardens. Visitors are advised to bring raincoats, waterproof and windproof clothing and trekking shoes as the weather tends to change quite unpredictably.
