Gunung Fatuleu or Fatuleu Mountain is a definite don’t miss when you’re in Kupang. Located 60km away from Kupang City, in the village of Nunsaen in East Nusa Tenggara, Fatuleu in the local language means Sacred Stone, a name given by the local tribes who often hold ceremonies and prayers at the mountain’s peak. At the peak is a cluster of giant and sacred rocks, one of which is called Nunle’u. Fatuleu was not always a tourists’ destination; previously the mountain was only accessible to religious figures, head of ceremonies and the tribes that live around Fatuleu for the purpose of praying and placing special offerings. Today, Fatuleu is open to the public and is one of the most popular tourists’ attractions in Kupang. Once at the peak, you might glimpse Oelamasi City in the plains below and carpets of green from the surrounding forests. Mount Fatuleu is great for any time of the day but for the most scenic views, it is recommended to reach the peak during sunrise or sunset.
