We visited Kelimutu as part of our week long trip, across the most beautiful Flores island. Led by the tour guide, we departed from our accommodation close to Moni village by 4 am, and after a 45 min drive, outside of the Moni town, we reached the Kelimutu National park. Since it was early hours and also because it is... More

We went to watch the sun rise. A local entrepreneur offered local coffee from his vacuum flasks which was wonderful at 03:30!

Really a must see if you are heading to Flores. Definitely one of the attractions of my entire trip. The colors of everything are fantastic, stunning views in the early morning as the sun is rising.

Visiting the crater lakes is a very nice trip. You have to walk up the mountain, but the views are a treat!

The lakes are lovely, though you do just arrive at a car park then wander up to the viewing platform with the other tourists and look at them. I agree with others who say if the weather's bad don't bother getting up there at dawn, go up a bit later and hopefully the cloud will have cleared. If you like... More

The trek is easily done and the changing colours of the lakes is beautiful. Arrive at the lookout just before sunrise and watch the the mesmerising view.
