Trip Planner: Asia / Indonesia / East Nusa Tenggara / Flores / Ende / Kelimutu Lake (Tri-Color Lake)
Enjoy panoramic views of multicolored waters from atop a volcano at Kelimutu Lake (Tri-Color Lake). The lake consists of three water-filled craters, known as "Tri-Color Lakes" because they change color depending on the light and the chemical make up of the water, which varies with volcanic activity. Most organized tours arrive at the viewpoint at sunrise, when overcrowding can be an issue. The view is just as impressive and much less crowded if you go later on in the morning.

Si arriva con una facile passeggiata. Si vedono solo due laghi insieme non tutti e tre perchè uno rimane dietro. La mattina c'è un vento fresco e fastidioso...però non bisogna demordere e aspettare ch... more »You come up with an easy walk. You only see two lakes together not all three because one stays behind. In the morning there is a fresh wind and annoying ... but we must not give up and wait for the clouds to pass to see the show. There is a zone where if you go you can make the photo between the two lakes but you have to be careful that the guides do not scream and you don't finish into the Lake.

THREE COLORS KELIMUTU CRATER CROSS NUSA thus the term from my nephew Bernard, when we arrived in Ende Flores from the starting point Tenau Kupang, we across the Ombai strait which separates the island of Timor and Flores. We take a rest at a home stay in Ende, Flores. The next day we visited the site Bung Karno (BK) in Jalan Perwira. What we see and thankfully remained well-preserved there, among others bed BK, wells and a number of memorable photos BK while in house arrest in Flores. Then we drove the Kijang car to the village of Moni where tourist attraction three colors Kelimutu crater is located. The crater is approximately 54 kilometers east of the town of Ende and take about 2 hours. On arrival at Moni, we directly hike to the crater which's only 7 km from the village of Moni. This, too, which means there's no obstacle, because there is a small road that has been covered with asphalt that allows the car deer mounts we can climb to the crater Flores. We parked just a stone's throw from the crater rim. The atmosphere was quiet, only the wind and the sound of birdsong is heard. But we then surprised greeting a local resident who is a natural encroachers Flores. "As it happens again empty pack, since the three colors have not appeared in the crater," as Simon the natural encroachers. Despite the unique phenomenon of three colors has not yet appeared, but it all does not detract from the beauty of nature crater Flores and the surrounding mountains. Long before through Traveling in Indonesia by John Dalton of Moon Publishing USA, I know three colors that include Red, Blue and White. The color change within a certain period. According to local myth Red color reflects the demons; Blue reflects the spirits of Peace and the White reflects holy spirits. Third Kelimutu Crater, among others, the deepest of about 127 meters, 5 ha, called Tiwu Nua Muri Koo Fai (Lake of Youth and Girls); Tiwu Ata Polo (lake Enchanting) as deep as 64 meters and the area of 4 hectares; Tiwu Mbupu Ata (Lake Parent) green, area of 4.5 hectares with a depth of 67 meters. Kelimutu Crater really fascinating. I posed at the crater rim Tiwu Nua Muri Koo Pai, which's white to the green moss. From my diary

Feast your eyes on the panorama of three crater lake that can change color overtime. This is the best spot to enjoy sunrise or sunset after a numerous hike. It's a great spot to enrich your instagram portofolio :) But don't let your selfie gets you careless by standing too close to the crater since the ground there is unstable in certain spots.
