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.

    Authentic there are only the huts. We have chosen to reach the village by independents: from labuan bajo arrived in Ruteng (visit to the underground market and the rice paddies a spider web). From here a taxi we arrived after a three-hour Street (route) to the guest House of Wae rebo (not the Lodge that is 9km below). Here we paid 200 k a head x the room more trekking guide who had to be English speaker instead was only Indonesian. After 1:30 you get to the huts, a young native speaker with great eloquence English cashes in to drink coffee several k guest House and photos. If you want you can sleep there. We were less than an hour why not having anyone who was doing as a liaison to communicate we could only watch. However, the feeling was to see a nice carousel of Gardaland

    WAE Rebo from Labuan Bajo from visited with the scooter. The route is feasible in 6 hours, then I was also glad I no longer have to sit on the scooter. Partly, the roads are very bad and hardly exist. I drove to the Homstay by Mr. Blaise past, up to the point where the local motorcyclists put off tourists and have parked there. The climb was done in 90 minutes, I was quite fast on the road. According to personal fitness, it may take but also twice as long. The instrument a few times loud arrived up beaten, my visit to announce and then the last minutes to the village. The head of Alex also welcomed me and brought a young to translate this, because I speak the language, nor on my side had a guide. After the ceremony, I was then officially welcomed. Sense is the ancestors to ask for permission. It was expected a donation of 20000. Then explore photos and the village. Of course, always with the due respect and after previous consent of the people. The food was simple and very tasty. The night, however, were a challenge, since many other tourists there. The night the light was on and it was snoring and talking. After breakfast 325000 for accommodation and three meals, paid and then I've made myself again on the way. Overall, a great experience, when I had to sleep only once when I was back at the hotel.

    We were there in August in this remote village in the mountains of Flores in the middle of the rain forest. These are simple huts where you can sleep in them. People living in this village are very friendly. To get to this place we relied on a terrific Guide named Irwan, a very sunny and full of life that made this stay special! He will help you and give you good advise always! If one day you go to this place I leave her email irwanyulianus@gmail.com. Bon voyage!
