Labuan Bajo is filled with beautiful waterfalls that fascinate tourists with their uniqueness. One such waterfall is  the Cunca Wulang Waterfall that is famous for its beautiful clear, tosca waters. Located in Wersawe Village, Mbeliling, West Manggarai, East Nusa Tenggara, this waterfall is located 30 km from Labuan Bajo, right in between the town and Ruteng. Cunca means waterfall and Wulang means Moon, meaning this waterfall is beautiful like the shining bright moon.

Travellers to Cunca Wulang can enjoy canyoning, hiking and swimming. Easily get to the waterfall with a car or a motorcycle. The road to the waterfall is quite challenging as it is winding and there are many large vehicles. Do not try to get to the waterfall if it is raining heavily. It is imperative to engage the service of a local guide to get here. The terrain can be quite challenging and you could get lost.

While it might be fun to jump from a 4-metre height into the pool below at Cunca Wulang, please remember that safety should come first. Also, please remember to not throw your rubbish around. Nature is our responsibility and it is in our hands to  keep Indonesia clean!
