We went to the volcanic lakes of Kelimutu twice. One time for sunrise and one time in the afternoon. Sunrise was beautiful! But in the afternoon you'll get to see the unreal colours of the lakes more clearly. Definitely worth going, also more than once!...More

Beautiful National Park. You need to leave Moni at 4 am latest to see the sunrise as it takes you at least 45min by car and then another 15min walk to the viewpoint. If you're fit, walk down back to Moni and visit a local...More
