The Kelimutu Crater Lakes Eco Lodge is set in a valley beside a burbling river with excellent views of Kelimutu, near the village of Moni in Eastern Flores.
The incredible lakes lie at 1,400m. above sea level in the volcanic craters of Kelimutu, yet each of the three crater lakes are markedly different in color. It is the only place on earth where this amazing color variation takes place. and the changing colours of the water in the lakes is a continuous process without clear explanation.
The village of Moni with its traditional Chief’s house, is only a 15 minute walk away. The Lodge has extensive varieties of exotic plants and flowers, some well suited to the cooler morning and evening climate. These plants will form the basis of the botanical art workshop of a morning, while the afternoons are devoted to sketching the unique local attractions.
