Worth a stop and a climb if going through the highlands. it's a great view. Only bad part was people standing there with Owls on chains for photographs. One of the Owl persons dyed the owl pink... horrible.

You will have to climb many flight of steps to get to the viewing area. Up there you will see the crater and you may walk around the circumference of the volcano if you are adventurous enough.

We hiked up the steps to the top of Mt. Mahawu. It was a short hike and not too strenuous. It's a nice view of the crater and even though we were advised against hiking around the crater because it is difficult to see over...More

Very short stairs climb to arrive on top and have a good sight of the volcano crater. You can see traces of sulfur and steam coming out which means that it is still a bit active. It is possible to walk around the crater. Only...More

There's not much to see here, the track was difficult and may only suitable for young and middle aged people, it seems the place was not maintained well. Skip this place if you have a little time. Go here at sunrise though.

If you ever want to see a sunrise on the rim of avolcano and don't want to do much walking, this is the place. The carpark is a minute walk uphill from the rim. It's cool to watch how nature wakes up. The walk around...More

It was pleasure time to come here. See the view and enjoy the silent place in the high place but it made me sad because there was so much rubbish every where.

We were dissapointed. There is not much to see. If you don't have a lot of time in Tomohon I would definitely skip this. The Lonely Planet says you can walk around the crater. We started our walk, but the grass and plants next to...More

It was cloudy that day so the view was limited. The volcano hole itself is nothing much to see, but interesting anyway.

Mahawu is a tourist attraction with well-built stair path and observatory. As a dormant volcano it is also much safer than Lokon (but you don't get to see smoke and lava either). The view on the top is great: you can see the town, nearby...More
