Getting there and away


For onwards travel, sample fares include Maumere 50,000, Ende 30,000 (bemo) or 35,000 rupiah (bus), Bajawa 100,000 rupiah and Ruteng 150,000 rupiah.

Ask at your accommodation for assistance -- as you'll need to flag down the correct transport as it passes.


    Assuming you don't have your own transport, there are two main ways to reach the summit. You can hire a bemo for 200,000 rupiah (for two passengers, price increases incrementally if you have more than two) for the trip there and back or an ojek will take a single passenger there and back for 100,000 rupiah. Expect the trip to take around 45 minutes to the carpark and then it is another 20-30 minute walk to the viewpoint.

    If you're coming from Ende, it's about two and a half to three hours to arrive at Kelimutu, by way of some of the most jaw-dropping tropical scenery in Southeast Asia. It's an extremely steep road with a lot of switchbacks, and you definitely don't want to encourage your driver to hurry it up.
