After your breakfast, drive down to the south coast where Denge village lies to start your trek to Wae Rebo, the oldest traditional village of the Manggarainesse. The trek will have you oohing and ahhhing at the gorgeous greenery surrounding you as the forest along the way is one of the wealthiest in terms of flora in Indonesia. At Wae Rebo, you will find unique conical houses, one of which will be a “drum house” where the villagers often hold meetings, rituals and prayers. Enjoy dinner with the locals in one of the houses, then settle in for bed there, too.

Day 6 – Wae Rebo / Denge / Labuan Bajo

Have your breakfast then bid goodbye to the villagers of Wae Rebo as you trek down to Denge village where you will be taken to Labuan Bajo’s pier at the western tip of Flores.

Lunch and dinner are served onboard, and you can settle in for the night on the boat as well.

At Manta Point, get into the water and experience swimming with the gentle and graceful Manta rays. Return to Labuan Bajo in the afternoon.
