Set amidst a scenic backdrop of the nearby mountains,Wae Rebo Village offers a glimpse into an authentic Indonesian village day-to-day life. You'll also see sightings of traditional mbaru niang--circular, conical, housing architecture. Set off from the lowlands, the village requires a three-hour hike to reach the site, so physical fitness, hiking experience, and ability should be taken into consideration. However, those who do take on this hiking challenge will be rewarded by a trek through dense green forest while encountering diverse plant and animal life.

  • Wae Rebo is a cute, traditional village in the mountains of Flores. From Labuan Bajo you can rent a car with driver and it takes 6h over bumpy roads to reach Denge, the village from where you start hiking. The hike from Denge to Wae Rebo is 6km long and you need to climb 600m. you could even sleep over at the village. just show up without reservation and pay the accomodation fee there.
  • A hidden gem in the mountains of Flores. One of the most incredible places I visited while living in Indonesia. Must hike for hours to reach this village, suggest you stay in one of the traditional houses.
  • A piece of heaven on earth. Great local people with their local wisdom. DON'T give candy or money to the children, but bring BOOKS instead!
  • 6 hours by car from Labuan Bajo and 3 hours trekking uphill to Wae Rebo village was really worth. Great view, great atmosphere, great people! Stay one night in one of Mbaru ngiang (traditional house) also a good choice. You can see the process of traditional coffee making, speak with local people, laugh and play with the kids, even just lay on the yard waiting for sunrise or sunset with a cup of Wae Rebo coffee. Priceless !
  • A nice place to visit if you are a traveler and backpacker and adventurer. Need time about 5-6 hours by car from Labuan Bajo and trekking about 3-4 hours to find this place.
