2. Explore the Kelimutu National Park

The Kelimutu National Park on Flores has an abundance of breathtaking natural beauty. The volcanic Mount Kelimutu and its three different colored crater lakes are particularly worth visiting. Mount Kelimutu and its lakes are sacred to the native Lio people, who believe the souls of the dead travel to the lakes. Because of this belief, you can often see food and other gifts on the rocks surrounding the lakes. Be sure to walk up the steps to Inspiration Point, the highest lookout where you can see all three lakes at once.
