For the year 2014 we will add some very interesting programs to our existing program schedule. Just be patient. We still work on it You can look forward to a Sea Safari in newly developed areas, to trekking tours in Manggarai and new daily trips to still untapped areas by tourism.
The trail follows the amusingly named Trans-Flores Highway, winding and often little more than single track in places. A scheduled nine days tour to Maumere, the Three Crater Lakes of Mt. Kelimutu, Riung, the 17 Islands National Park, Bajawa with its Megalith-Villages and Hot Springs, to Ruteng, Labuan Bajo and the Komodo National Park. Starting point is Maumere. Departure Dates are fixed.
Seraya Kecil is a small picturesque island in the north of Labuan Bajo with excellent white sandy beaches. It is the ideal place to hang out on the beach or in the local restaurant. Here you are also able to snorkel and to explore the colourful underwater world in the crystal clear water.
On a wooden buginese boat you travel from Labuan Bajo to Lombok in 4 days respectively 3 nights with several stop overs for snorkeling, sightseeing or trekking. Of course you are going to see the Komodo Dragons as well. This journey is a really special alternative to flights to Bali or Lombok. Departure days are Wednesdays and Sundays.
Waerebo is the only traditional Manggarai ethnic village with traditional houses. It is located at an altitude of 1,125 m above sea level amongst the Nature Conservation forest.
There are now 7 traditional houses or Mbaru Tembong and each of them houses more than one family. The people live on agricultural products like coffee beans, taro and vegetables.
Toward the end of the trip you will be required to trek uphill about 3 to 4 hours passing rain forests and nature pools.
