Package Itinerary

This full day excursion will be visiting Minahasa; the hinterlands of Manado. The first stop is Tinoor a beautiful view of Manado and surroundings from 500m above sea level, another stop will be made at "Bukit Inspirasi" ("Inspiration Hill") in Tomohon, then visit Linow Lake (a lake of changing colors) and the famous Tondano Lake, also visit Sawangan with its largest collections of ancient sarcophagus or "Waruga."
 
In the village of Sawangan in the Airmadidi district you will find a collection of stone sarcophagi. Varying in age, the oldest reportedly dates back as far as 900AD. The Waruga as they are called consist two distinct parts; the hollowed out square or rectangular base, and a roof like lid into which some have carved scenes depicting the life, and sometimes death of the occupant. 
 
According to the wizened old crone who tends the grounds here, the oldest of the sarcophagi have no decorations. It was only a relatively recent practice, from 1700s on, to add the low relief carvings. One scene clearly shows a woman giving birth and suggests that she must have died during labour. Surrounded by gnarled frangipani trees this is an eerie place, especially when you consider that the dead were not buried underground but merely placed, inside the vessel in a fatal position squatting atop a china plate bodies.
