From this hill people can enjoy the beauty of Gorontalo Bay.Unfortunately ,currently this place is used for the place of garbage disposal.

During the one month school's holiday the "play ground" of these three children moved to the place of garbage disposal.

They became "garbage collectors", followed tracks of their parents in order to fullfill their "lebaran" needs such as new clothes. in a day, they could collect 20-25 kilograms garbage....Life is not too easy for them.
