Flores Island is a long, narrow mountainous island which stretches over 350 kilometers with dramatic volcanoes, mountain lakes, flora and fauna like no other island in the region. Even though 85% of its inhabitants are Roman Catholic, the island is still as ethnographically diverse as Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) itself. Some towns of Flores, Maumere, Ende and Labuan Bajo have direct daily flights to Kupang and Bali and is well serviced by ferries and the Pelni ships as well as several privately operated shipping lines.
The Three Colored Lakes of Kelimutu are recognized as a natural wonder. The colors of the lakes have changed over the years, is it the changing chemical or biological composition of the craters’ water causing this color change – ponder on it while you view one of Indonesia’s most mysterious and dramatic sights.
Flores Island exemplifies diversity more than any other region of Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), from the varying motifs of the Ikat weavings of Sikka, Manggarai and Nggela to the spectacular Three Colored Lakes of KeliMutu contrasting with the pristine coral gardens of the Seventeen Island National Reserve of Riung. Whether giant monitor lizard watching in Damu Bay or experiencing the dusk flight of the thousands of flying foxes on Ontoloe Island – Flores Island is as diverse as it is beautiful.
