Sikka’s Mount Egon

Lovers of mountains and those who enjoy the physical challenges of mountain climbing must visit Mount Egon in the Sikka district of Flores. Did you know that there are more than 12 volcanoes across Flores that is suitable for trekking? Mount Egon is one of them. At the summit of 1671m, you’ll find a crater that is 350m wide and 200m deep. Depending on the season, there could be a lake in the crater. To get to the summit, you’ll have to hike from Blidit Village over dry grasslands and savannahs before you reach wide-open landscapes for about 2 to 3 hours. Another hour’s hike will get you to the summit where you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the crater and the islands beyond. The best way to enjoy this activity is with a local operator or professional guide from Maumere. *Photo by
