If you visit East Flores of Indonesia, one of the main attractions there is definitely Mount Kelimutu with its three crater lakes. Go to the Moni village, 50 kilometers Northeast of the city of Ende, climb the Kelimutu peak at sunrise time, and you will find the beautiful view of Kelimutu peak, the crater lakes with their three different colors, and the scenery of the Kelimutu National Park. But that’s not all. When you are at the peak of Kelimutu, turn your viewpoint to the east. The beautiful view of mountain layers, surrounded by the mist, is waiting for you.
