We have visited the mount as it was a must have when you visited the area. After seeing it I really wonder why people are so thrilled by it? Basically it is a hill with three lakes in it... The easiest path is to get there by car to the parking area and from there you have 25 minutes uphill... More

Wow, so we had to rise very early to get in the car to take us to the entrance. Once we walked up to the top it was certainly worth the early morning start to experience what we saw. The sights are breathtaking and an experience that I am happy to have experienced. Even though there may be a number... More

Wonderful experience. We escaped from our dreadful hotel in Moni at 4.30am for a drive of half an hour or so to the entrance where we paid our fees and then walked up to the crater top to see the sunrise. Sunrise was beautiful and the crater lakes were both beautiful and fascinating. We were lucky to have a clear... More

A truly magical experience, getting up at 4am in Moni for the 30 min drive and 20 min walk to the top of Kelimutu before dawn. A small crowd of 30-40 people gathered in the cold on the top to see the sunrise over the three lakes of Kelimutu. The pictures aren't lying, the lakes are truly three strongly different... More

The hiking track to witness the magnificent view is not hard and relatively easy. Choose your time during the non rainy days to have clearer few with less fog.

to be amaze after a 30 minutes step-ups the peak of the mountain, awaiting the sun rise glazing after the fogs gone, and mesmerize by the views of the amazing 3 colours volcano-lake by nature. to realize how beautiful Indonesia is, and be blessed to witnessing by our own eyes. a must do before you die.

We took a trip to Ende on Flores especially to explore Kelimuti. We spent our first night in the mountain village of Moni which is the main base on the way to Kelimutu volcano - and it's famous three crater lakes. Getting to Moni is an adventure in itself as the only way in is via a twisty mountain road... More

So,we were sick of getting fat off the Mie goreng and Bintang and decided to walk from our hotel to the top of the mountain. It was a 20k trek all up hill. We walked through the local market and got a slice of Moni life. Up the hill there were some villages and apparently a short cut that we... More
