The kelimutu makes are beautiful, easy to walk to. We enjoyed the view and the jungle forest around. But I'm not sure it worth it if you have already seen volcanoes/lakes/caldera

We went up on the back of motorbikes. Had to get off in parts due to roadworks and muddy road. Motorbikes are the best bet though as there were a number of cars unable to get through. Lovely at the top. We walked back to...More

Easy climb and worth the effort for the (very) early morning walk. When we got to the top, I wasn't too disappointed with the view, albeit it was cloudy.Be prepared with raincoats and warm clothes/fleece. It can be wet and cold.

I think Mt. Kelimutu is the best destination in Flores Island, alongside Labuan Bajo pf course. The 3 colors crater lakes are so amazing. Astonishing!

The lakes had been on my list for 20 years so I sure had some expectation when going there. Due to ongoing road constructions, the climb (by car) from Moni to the entrance of the lake park was quite difficult and dusty. But that didn't...More

In my opinion, it's better to go to Kelimutu by plane, because it takes 12 to 13 hours by driving (but actually you can stop by Ruteng to see the famous "Spider-Web Ricefield"). It depends on your preferences. But I think... More
