Behind the vastness of Lake Tondano which was formed from this volcanic eruption, there is a love story of two lovers who are not approved by their parents. This pair of lovers fled and then entered the forest in the Gunung Kaweng area. For violating the prohibition on marriage, as a result Mount Kaweng erupted causing a large puddle. This puddle later became Lake Tondano until now.
