Kelimutu Lake (Tri-Color Lake), Ende
(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Kelimutu Lake (Tri-Color Lake) on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Ende vacation trip planner.
