As we had 3 days in Kupang we made the small trek out here, certainly was worth it if you go at the right time during the middle of the day, good to do a bit of swimming as well

Amazing if you like a little bit of mountain climbing. Water was beautiful, bats were cool however the walk down and up is a little hard to do. I really enjoyed seeing this natural wonder with my own eyes.

Located alil bit far from the city, but you can ask people around to locate. The way to cave and the cave its self are abit rocky and slippery so make sure you have comfortable footwear.

30 minutes from Kupang, free of entry (if you take one of local guides it wil you cost maybe 30k). Spectaculair blue water when the light hits it. Good for a cave swim or even dive.

We surprise when we saw the sparkling clear water from the top of the cave. The water seem to call me to swim. It really a must visit site when you are in kupang if you love to swim in nature

WOW. Although the cave itself wasn't that big or challenging. But for first-timer like me, it was tiring enough. There's any lighting (yet) in the cave and if the sunshine doesn't come in, it's complete dark down there. So prepare your flashlight from your cellphone....More
