DAY 2

RATENGGARO VILLAGE - BWANNA BEACH - LAPOPU WATERFALL

Early start for today. Pack all your stuffs we’re moving to the east. We’re going to visit, Ratenggaro village. A traditional village located right by the beach. Here you can learn a little bit about the culture of Sumba, and see their traditional houses. Afterwards, we’re going to the beach. Bwanna Beach, a beach underneath a huge cliff, with a big hole going through the beach. It creates a such a dramatic landscape. Then we’re heading east! On the way, we’ll stop at Lapopu Waterfall, we can swim there and enjoying the fresh water in the river. We’ll stay in Waingapu tonight.

DAY 3

SUMBA FABRIC WORKSHOP - PURU KAMBERA - BUKIT WAIRINDING - BUKIT TENAU
After a long day on the road yesterday, we can start to slow down a little bit here. From now on we are fully exploring the East side of Sumba. First stop, let’s take a look at the famous Sumba Fabric. We will see how they make the fabric and you can buy some if you like. Prepare some cash! They are not cheap. Then let’s go to the savannah, Puru Kambera. Another unique landscape of a savannah right by the ocean. We can see some wild animals roaming around if we’re lucky. We’ll stop a little bit at the beach later. Once we’re done, we will be going to Bukit Wairinding, a rather photogenic and awesome landscape. We’ll stay here enjoying the landscape until sunset. If you’re up for it, we can go stargazing around Waingapu. I must tell you though, I think it is one of the best places to stargaze in the country. Going back to Waingapu for the night.

DAY 4

WAIMARANG WATERFALL - TANA RARA - WALAKIRI

After a rather slow day yesterday, we will be starting early once again. We have a lot of places to visit today. First one, Waimarang waterfall. One of the most magical waterfalls in Sumba. There will be a little hike, around 30 mins each way, but once yo get there, it will be worth it! Prepare to swim here. Then, we’re going to visit Tanarara a mix of Puru Kambera and Wairinding I guess. We’ll have a sunset session in Walakiri Beach, with those weird looking mangroves. Hopefully the weather is good. Going back to Waingapu for the night.
