Tangkoko Hill


The Tangkoko Hill Cottage and resto is a small, comfortable accommodation located conveniently close to the gates of the Tangkoko Batuangus Nature Reserve, in the North Sulawesi province. Established in 2012 as a base for visitors who want to explore the natural delights of the reserve, Tangkoko has retained its basic ethos that the wildlife is the most important thing, and has not tried to detract from this with overly luxurious accommodation and facilities. The basic nature of the accommodation allows guests to feel more at one with their wild surroundings.

Tangkoko Nature Reserve covers an area of 87000 hectares, and includes three mountains: Mount Tangkoko; Mount Duasudara and Mount Batuangus. The lowland tropical rainforest is a fantastic habitat, popular amongst scientists, researchers and birdwatchers alike. There are at least 233 species of bird to be found here, amongst which 103 are Sulawesi endemic – hence why this is a unique and popular birding experience.

The majority of guests visit here for the wildlife, and a full bird watching tour of the Reserve typically takes around 3-4 days. However, the staff at the hotel will happily arrange custom trips of any focus or duration, and have top quality guide to help make the most of your time in the reserve.


Rooms have double or twin beds, air conditioning, TV and en-suite bathrooms. There is a restaurant serving Asian cuisine, and a buffet breakfast.

[Tangkoko Hill] is in a great position, only 300m from the National Park Entrance. Our guide was also very good.
