Flores and our visit to the Kelimutu volcano.

Before our dive trip started we had two days in Maumere. After a day of acclimation on the beach we got up in the middle of the night for our visit to the Kelimutu volcano. It was a long drive to the other side of the island through small villages and the rainforest. The weather by the volcano wasn't as good as we expected. It was "very" cold and foggy. Luckily the clouds vanished soon after we got to the three volcano lakes "Tiwi Ata Mbupu", "Tiwu Nua Muri Kooh Tai" and "Tiwu Ata Polo".

When we arrived on the summit, which is a viewpoint, a group of Crab-eating Macaques were enjoying the warm morning sun and so did we.
