It was dark, when the driver and me woke up the security at the entrance path to the Kelimutu craters. We drove a litle more and parked at the highest parking place. From there it was an easy path and about 250 steps up to the view point to the double lakes with the sun rising at the horizon and the third lake at our back. With the increasing light the different colors of the three lakes became very good visible. Magnificent and unique in the world, If you’re seeking for natural wonders of the world and are constantly in search of places to add to your photography bucket list, you might want to look at paying a visit to Kelimutu. The three lakes are named Tiwu Ata Mbupu, Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai, and Tiwu Ata Polo, which translate to Lake of Old People, Lake of Young Men and Maidens, and Bewitched or Enchanted Lake, respectively.
