Go early in the morning and wear some warm clothes. Go all the way to the top of the stairs. It's a few steps and the smell is awful, but totally worth it! The colors are amazing!

One of them is like Black-Brown with tinge of orange and the other is a bright Green-Blue.... More

Cool short walk to view points. Garbage cans and bench to sit everywhere along path. Kiosk for food and gifts at the bottom along with toilets. For two of... More

I liked the Kelimutu, I disliked Moni village, too expensive in comparison of the standard. Moni people are too much used to tourism already.
