Mystique Flores

Flores, which can be reached by direct flights or even live-aboard cruises from Bali, offers verdant landscapes dotted with multi-ethnic villages such as Luba and Bena with traditional houses, where it is interesting to see that animistic beliefs are still very much present, even though catholicism is the main religion here. There are excellent roads covering the island from east to west – interesting enough that so far tourist groups are hardly ever seen, and individual travelers predominate.
The most famous tourist attraction in Flores is Kelimutu, a volcano containing three colored lakes, located in the district of Ende close to the town of Moni. These crater lakes are in the caldera of a volcano and have highly acidic water. The colored lakes change colors on an irregular basis, depending on the oxidation state of the lake from bright red through green and blue. Labuanbajo (on the western tip of Flores) is a town often used by tourists as a base to visit Komodo- and Rinca Nationalpark. Labuanbajo also attracts scuba divers, as whale sharks inhabit the waters around Labuanbajo. The west coast of Flores is one of the few places, aside from the island of Komodo itself, where the Komodo dragon can be found in the wild and is part of the Komodo National Park, a UNESCO heritage site. In September 2004, at Liang Bua cave in western Flores, paleoanthropologists discovered small skeletons that they described as a previously unknown hominid species, Homo floresiensis.

Flores Adventure Tours

They are informally named hobbits and appear to have stood about 1 m (3.3 ft) tall. The excavation site can be visited as a side trip when touring the island. Sumbawa island, right in the middle between Flores and Lombok, is among those places in the vast geographical region called Nusa Tenggara that you could call the last frontier ob tourist development in Indonesia, but the potential is there, and already waiting for travellers who love pioneering explorations off the beaten tracks, and are willing to accept the limited choice of high-class accommodation. The reward for such free spirits is being one of the few chosen ones to see unspoiled forest, archeological sites, a coastline of numerous pristine beach, and the famous underwater world e.g. off Moyo Island, which is also the only part of Sumbawa offering deluxe class accommodation.
