There are three lakes on the mountain sharing the same name, Kelimutu, which is mean ‘the boiling lake’. Each lake has its own colors and, based on the local myth; it is believed to be the resting place of departed souls.

The colors of the lakes are always unpredictable as to when and what color they will change into (could be blue, green, black, white, red, or blue). As part of Kelimutu National Park, Lake Kelimutu presents a highly aesthetic value and surreal experience. Kelimutu area is surrounded with forest containing rare floras and faunas.
