You can spend a wonderful day here. Hiking, enjoying the rough lanscape and the beautiful rocky beaches.
The trekking starts from Kasawari village for 1 hour hiking up to the peak of Batu Angus volcano with 3 km wide and flat-topped basaltic-andesitic lava dome, then another 2 hours trekking through the jungle.
Considering the fact that there have been almost no tourists visiting this area, the animals are “really wild & shy” you may not be able to see them as close as in Tangkoko nature reserve.
