Delight native cultural from Flores, Eastern of Indonesia – Nusa Tenggara Timur. Traditional native ethnic of Flores integrated by Melayu, Melanesia and Portuguese. They keep their own native life style, and the unique thing find that the Flores community has embraced several teachings of modern religion, such as Catholicism, Islam, Christianity and so on. But there are still preserved ancestral traditions.
One of them is the megalithic tradition in several sub-ethnic Flores. For example, the tradition of establishing and maintaining buildings of worship for ancestral spirits as a form of respect for the ancestors and their spirits dates back to around 2500 – 3000 years ago and some of them still continue today.
Flores is known for its charming cultural arts, beautiful nature adds to the charm of this beautiful island. The native inhabitants of Flores from the Riung tribe to the east show Melanesian characteristics like the Papuans. But more in Manggarai shows the Mongoloid-Malay characteristics. And the Larantuka tribe has a more diverse characteristic because they have got the influence of other tribes in Indonesia and the Balinese tribe as well. Mmmm ……
Famous dance art from Flores ‘Bumi Congkasae Manggarai, one of which is Caci dance. War dance which is also a folk game between a pair of male dancers who fight with whips and shields on Flores. Caci means one on one exam to prove who is right and wrong. Besides the famous Caci Flores dance, there are also Gawi dances, Sodh’a, Rokatenda, Ja’i dance.
The giant monitor lizard “Varanus Komodoensis” is a rare animal owned by the world-protected Flores.

The main attraction in Kelimutu National Park is a three-color lake that always changes the color of its lake water. In this park also grow various species of plants and mosses.
