Tiwusora Village in Ende - Flores, Indonesia

Explore the Enchantment of the Inland Village of Tiwu Sora

In this tour, your eyes will be spoiled by the beautiful and cool countryside scenery, which is completely free from air pollution. You will see a vast expanse of wild grass that stretches from hill to hill, the breeding ground for hundreds of buffaloes, horses and cows which are wildly bred by local residents.

The owners of these animals never feed, but only occasionally come to check their condition to make sure they are still complete or not.

Each owner knows their livestock naturally, and the way of checking them is very unique where the owner comes only with a bottle of water mixed with salt. The owner would stand at a certain spot then hit the bottle against his thigh, and that's where all his cattle came to lick the salt water.

Moving to the next location, you will see a vast mountain lake of about 6 hectares, a breeding ground for three types of giant eels of different colors, which are believed by the local people to be their ancestors. These eels live from three different springs which all empty into the same lake.

From here you will be escorted to Deturia village to meet local villagers and see their life conditions from outside and inside the house. You can chat with them and share experiences with each other.

Your online live tour ends here and SAYONARA….

The Wonders of the Three Colored Crater Lakes of Kelimutu

Nusa Tenggara Timur
2 hours

What colors will we see today? That’s the question that is often asked by almost all foreign guests we guide so far when approaching the Crater of Lakes Kelimutu. The answer is no one knows for sure! Everything depends on the mood of the spirits inhabiting each of the three lakes. Mount Kelimutu with three crater lakes, each filled with "different colored boiling water", can be called Dark Green, Turquoise and Dark Brown if it does not change color to Red, White and Blue.
