We enjoyed this but it was incredibly crowded at the top and absolutely freezing with a biting wind. Take hat and gloves and warm jacket! This slightly took the edge off it as my hands virtually froze! Beautiful lakes and views.

It was exciting. The color of the lakes, the smog, the sunrise, and the darkness before before the daybreak.

You can’t visit Flores without seeing Kelimutu. It is truly stunning. My husband and I went a few weeks ago for the sunrise (a windy and chilly affair, so dress warmly) and stayed about 3 hours. It is unlike anything you will ever see. Take...More

We did not go for sunrise & the lakes still looked amazing! It is a fairly long walk up stairs from the parking lot to another road which leads up to more steps to the peak. We had a very nice hike up early morning,...More
