If we talk about the wonderful of Indonesia, Nusa Tenggara Island does hide beautiful places that we shouldn’t miss. There’s a story that won’t run out to tell. Behind the hot weather, at the end of the savannah, there are hidden beautiful places that shouldn’t be missed!
And this time the wind brought us to a beautiful place in one corner of Sumba, Lake Weekuri. A lake with clear water like glass! Lake Weekuri is located in Kalena Rongo Village, Kodi Utara District, Southwest Sumba Regency, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
The Access to Lake Weekuri is a bit difficult. First, you should go to Tambolaka. Then, you can continue the journey to Lake Weekuri with an estimated time of approximately 2 hours drive by private vehicle, because there is no public transport available to serve that route. Therefore, the traveller is advised to use a private vehicle or rent a car/motorcycle with the driver. The distance between the city centre and the lake is about 38 km from the centre of Southwest Sumba District (it is about 1 hour 24 minutes).
Lake Weekuri is like a lagoon surrounded by rocks and large cliffs. This lake is famous for having very fascinating scenery. If we see it from a height, then we can know if Wekuri Lake has very clear water.
Water in Lake Weekuri is brackish water (salty) because this lake is located right beside the sea that only separated by cliffs alone. So in this lake, we have presented two natural scenery at once, the lake and the sea. Water in Lake Weekuri has a turquoise colour. Even so clear, we can see the sand at the bottom of the lake you know. Moreover, this lake is not too deep, so this lake is very suitable for swimming even though you can not swim.
Have a nice day!

Happy travel and leave no trash!
