Gunung Lokon

Trekking in Tomohon

Gunung Lokon (1580m) occasionally reminds residents it's an active volcano by sending out earthquakes or spewing ash high into the sky. The last major eruption was 2012, but it's occasionally closed to hikers due to increased seismic activity. You can hike to it from Tomohon in about three hours, with another hour to reach the peak.

Being that it is highly active, it's essential to check out its current status, but also understand that volcanoes are notoriously unpredictable.
