The lake's natural beauty unfolds as a number of grouse fly low from one of its edges before dipping onto its surface that contains sulfur, and hence the three colors. The sun's rays also affect the gradation in color as they reflect and refract off the lake's surface. The lake itself seems to be divided; one side is filled with sulfur while the other side is devoid of it. There is, in fact, a natural canal within the lake that channels the sulfur flowing out of the lake. As a result, there's a strong sulphur odor in the area of Tomohon, especially near Danau Linow. As consequence, an unpleasant smell becomes discernable (similar to rotten eggs) and smoke rises from the soil.
