Don't forget to visit the following 5 tourist destinations if you are on holiday in Flores – It's no secret that Flores is an island in Indonesia with amazing natural wealth. Most tourists visit Flores only at its western tip, namely Labuan Bajo. But if you have arrived here, why not explore Flores Island more deeply?
Here are five recreational spots that you must visit while on holiday in Flores:
1. Wae Rebo Village.
Wae Rebo Village is in Ruteng, Manggarai Regency, and is known as the 'village above the clouds'. How could it not be, Wae Rebo is at an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level. You have to climb for around 3-4 hours to arrive at this isolated village. Wae Rebo is only divided into several traditional houses. This is the perfect location to connect directly with the local Flores community. The view of the Milky Way when the weather is cheerful will add color to your warm evening with the local community.
2. Cunca Wulang.
Cunca Wulang waterfall is in Mbeiling, about 30 km from Labuan Bajo. Cunca Wulang is quite famous among residents because its water channel is clamped by a soaring cliff. Many tourists try jumping on rocks to feel the adrenaline rush before plunging into the amazingly clear natural pool.
3. Padar Island.
While still in Labuan Bajo, don't forget to visit Padar Island which is famous for its beauty. Even though it has been visited by many tourists, this island is still worth visiting to see the view of the two bays that meet each other. The best time to climb to the top of Padar Island is in the morning. Apart from being able to see the view of the sun coming out, the sunlight is not so hot that you can climb comfortably.
4. Melo Village.
Melo Tradition Village has a shortcut time of around 45 minutes driving from Labuan Bajo. This is where you can see the traditional art of Caci Dance. This dance includes 2 men dancing while whipping both of them.
Kelimutu National Park in Pemo Village, Kelimutu District, Ende Regency has three craters, each of which has a different color. The best time to visit this place is in the morning. The view of the sunrise from the top of Mount Kelimutu is truly interesting. Don't worry, because the stairs are along the climbing route. You only need about 1-2 hours of climbing to reach the top of Kelimutu.
