Silversea Expedition Cruises To ENDE FLORES

ENDE FLORES

Approaching Ende is a sensorial feast. Birds chirrup overhead, eyes see the twin peaks Gunung Meja (661m) and Gunung Iya (627m) looming over the city and the perfumed scents of the local ginger tasting coffee and cloves promise exoticism and mystery in equimeasure. As if that wasn’t enough, the black sands and cobbled shores make Endes a very unique setting. The town of Ende is in the south of Flores Island, which is part of the Lesser Sundra Islands.

Together with the Greater Sundra Islands, Lesser Sundra forms the Sundra archipelago, north of Australia. Part of the Sundra Arc, Flores is volcanic (hence that black sand). But, bar a few worthwhile attractions in the city centre (the town was under Portuguese rule for 300 years and many colonial structures such as the Roman Catholic Church still remain), Endes is above all a gateway for the Kelimutu National Park. Keli meaning Mountian and mutu meaning boiling, you are left in no doubt as to what to expect! Although there is no need to worry, the last eruption was in 1968. The park is 50 kilometres east of Ende, but worth every minute of the hour-plus drive to get there. Famous for its three crater lakes, each startling in their colourful beauty, the lakes are only accessible by foot. The three have wonderful names: the “Lake of Young Men and Maidens”, the “Bewitched Lake” and the “Lake of Old People” – all of which have superb legends attached. Keep your eyes peeled as endemic wildlife species abound, be it in the trees or on the ground.
