Solar Eclipse 2016 in Indonesia

On March 9, it will be dark at 08:58 (West Indonesian time), when the moon is in front of the sun. Scientists resulted: Indonesia is the best place where you can experience this rare phenomenon. Many hotels in South Sumatra, South Kalimantan, Central Sulawesi and in the northern Moluccas are already fully booked. The ferry operator Pelni brings 5.000 visitors with two of their ships to Ternate / Moluccas.

It is sure that East Halmahera (Maluku), remains the longest obscured of the sun with 3 minutes and 19 seconds. That is a real reason to fly together with the team of Mountain View Resort from Manado to experience the wonders of nature on a coral island, fringed by white sand beaches. Overnight accommodation is in a tent camp on the island.

Early bookings are required because there are only propeller planes, which have a limited number of seats to Halmahera.
Early bird booking pays off also in addition, because we give 10% discount (subject to availability) on accomodations and dive packages for holiday extensions in North Sulawesi in the month of March 2016, whether at Mountain View Resort & Spa, Mapia Dive Resort or Siladen Dive Resort!
Only for direct bookings through Mountain View Resort!

Cigars & Shishas

In a place known better for its cigars, Taru Martani manufactory is the country’s oldest and largest cigar maker. It was initially built under the name of N.V. Negresco in 1918.
Three years later this cigar factory moved to Jogjakarta. After World War II was taken over by the late Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX and renamed Taru Martani, Javanese for the leaves of life.

Enjoy a handmade cigar at Mountain View Resort & SPA.

Shisha pipes use tobacco sweetened with fruit or molasses sugar, which makes the smoke more aromatic than cigarette smoke. Popular flavorings include apple, plum, coconut, mango, mint, strawberry and cola. Wood, coal, or charcoal is burned in the shisha pipe to heat the tobacco and create the smoke because the fruit syrup or sugar makes the tobacco damp.
Smoke a shisa pipe at Mountain View Resort & SPA after a great dinner.

Kayaking Tondano lake

On 13.09.2014 we organized our first trip with kayaks on the Tondao lake, the second largest in Indonesia. The weather was fine. A bit windy and some waves. But no problem for adventurers

We could enjoy the ride along the west bank and enjoyed the lake from a new perspective.

After paddling, we had a late lunch in one of the  lakeside restaurants. They offer delicacies from the Tondano lake: water snails sate and crab.
This Lake is situated at 683 metres, surrounded by a 600 sq km large Caldera at the edges of the active volcanoes Soputan, Sempu, Lokon-Empung and Mahawu.

Back, we went through the village of Rurukan, which is well known for its organic field products.
We could enjoy a nice views to Mount Klabat, the Tondano lake and the Maluku sea.
In the future, this day trip from/to mountain view resort can be booked in our office.
