Minahasa Plateau

The name Minahasa means "to be one entity". This name comes from the war against the Bolaang Mangondow Kingdom. In 670, North Sulawesi never developed any large kingdom. In North Sulawesi leaders from various tribes, all of whom spoke different languages, met a stone known as Watu Pinawetengan. There they established a community of independent states, which would form a unity and remain together and would fight outside enemies if they were attacked. That is the origin of the name Minahasa which means to be a unity.

In the Minahasa highlands, tourists can see local wisdom and the culture of the surrounding community. In Minahasa there are many groups and tribes who can coexist peacefully. These tribes include Tombulu, Tonsea, Tondano, Tontemboan, Tonsawang, Ponosakan, Pasan Ratahan, Babontehu and Bantik. Here visitors can take pictures with beautiful highland landscapes coupled with traditional houses that are still awake, as well as interesting community activities.
