We went up on the back of motorbikes. Had to get off in parts due to roadworks and muddy road. Motorbikes are the best bet though as there were a number of cars unable to get through. Lovely at the top. We walked back to...More

259 steps to the top after a short trek up a trail. The views are well worth the walk up. Stop for a relaxing coffee at the top.

Easy climb and worth the effort for the (very) early morning walk. When we got to the top, I wasn't too disappointed with the view, albeit it was cloudy.Be prepared with raincoats and warm clothes/fleece. It can be wet and cold.

I think Mt. Kelimutu is the best destination in Flores Island, alongside Labuan Bajo pf course. The 3 colors crater lakes are so amazing. Astonishing!

Kelimutu is quite spectacular and super easy to access, which might be a good or a bad thing. For me, it makes it a bit less interesting, since you really see the same scenery as shown in the pictures :p There is no "experience": everything...More

We missed the sunrise by 30 minutes but the view was still stunning. Hardly any tourists (maybe 10 others) and beautiful views as the clouds had rolled away. Really easy walk and if you take small change you can buy coffee, strawberries etc at the...More
