We were quite hesitant to visit this large lake and expected to see a large body of water.
It turned out to be quite interesting and photogenic place, as there are many fishermen’s houses and fisheries on the shore of the lake with many green water plants.
Probably the best view over the lake is from the newly erected bamboo view platforms above the lake- tree houses. Here are at least 6 platforms so one can choose the best one, and the fee is voluntary. From the tree houses the view overlooks not only the lake, but also the mountains on the far side of the lake.

We were on a private tour and after quite a long drive on narrow roads we arrived at the Lake. The shoreline on the side we went to was covered with water hyacinth (eceng gondok), so it was not very pretty. We had lunch at one of the restaurants built on stilts. Feels like it was a floating restaurant. It was a very nice atmosphere, and the food was good, local fish and local dishes. We did not have the chance to go boating or fishing at the lake.

This lake features on many of the group tours organised from Manado. Often, you are brought here for lunch on a semi-floating restaurant! It is one of the largest lakes in North Sulawesi. Some views are very nice, but many are through uncontrolled vegetation and, to be honest, the waters are not the cleanest, due to drainage from cultivated land.

Sumaru endo is the recreation ideal for families to enjoy relaxing weekend after a full week to run the activities. Its location on the edge the lake tondano , precisely in the village leleko , district remoken , minahasa , about 12 km from the city tondano , 45 km from the city manado , 65 km from the international airport sam ratulangi manado, north sulawesi .
The name sumaru endo is taken from remboken language that means “facing the sunrise” so the main attractions that lure tourists are sunrise and sunset . Enough with the Rp . 5000 you can log in Sumaru endo travel .

Tondano lake is a lake that lies between the two districts namely Tomohon Regency and Regency Kawangkoa. Remboken her right in the village, the lake is listed as the largest lake in the province of North Sulawesi. Tandano lake's tourism has become one of the tourist destinations in the area of Manado. This is because the potential contained in the lake is very beautiful. To enjoy the beauty of this lake can walk around the lake using a boat rental services are widely available on the lake. The rental price for a boat of its cheap enough at $ 50,000 with a cargo of 10 passengers. However, the boat will be executed if the passenger is fulfilled 10 people, so ya need a little patience.
