Wolosoko: For chocolate lovers
A perfect destination for those who love chocolate, Wolosoko is a small village near Moni, in Ende. This village is not just any other traditional village; Wolosoko features a charming combination of traditional houses and an organic cocoa plantation where a group of local farmers work together with Cocoa Village Clinic to develop high-quality cocoa crops with the support of LED NTT, a Swiss-Indonesian collaboration project.
When you arrive at the village, the farmers will be more than happy to share with you details on their cocoa farming. They’ll even offer you a glass of delicious hot cocoa while you take in the deliciously cool air of this tranquil village.
Another great point of attraction in Wolosoko is the well-maintained Lionese ceremonial houses. You could also join in Mama Susana’s pottery workshop and learn more about the long-standing local handicraft. This would be a great opportunity for you as the art of pottery making is slowly dying here in this village – Mama Susana is one of the last few women here with the skills in this particular art form.

– Shops and facilities are located in Ende
– It is polite to give a little donation before leaving the village
