Ende’s Wonderful Kelimutu
Ende is home to the magnificent Mount Kelimutu and its 3-coloured crater lakes. Ende is also the site to the house of Indonesia’s first President, Soekarno, who lived there during his exile. Take your time to discover all the riches that Ende has to offer; there are plenty of traditional villages to see like Jopu and Tenda, as well as the Blikon Blewut Museum that houses various displays of art and daily life. The Museum is linked to activities of the international order of the Societas Verbi Divini (SVD) in the early 20th century, also named the Divine World Missionaries. It is situated on the campus of an eminent Roman Catholic institute. At Watublapi, you’ll get a chance to see the intricate weaving process of the traditional Ikat cloth and cultural dance. You could also visit a fishing village called Wuring as well as the local market and art market to take some photos, buy souvenirs and handicrafts.
