Kelimutu Three Color panoramic lake in Ende, Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara, is full of inscrutable mystery until now ini.the colour change of lake is often the case in three separate craters former eruption of Mount Kelimutu is a uniqueness that no other in the world. For residents who live long enough in mainland Flores, I will explain what I know about Lake Flores based on observation and personal knowledge.
Lake Kelimutu in Ende, Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara is known as the lake three colors. This beautiful lake walls prone to landslides. Unfortunately, not as beautiful as the beauty of Lake Kelimutu management system. Number of facilities, especially facilities for tourists, now many in poor condition and not well maintained. For example, a small room, pavilion building in poor condition the parking area, as well as the capacity is very limited parking space, which is only able to accommodate about 20 four-wheeled vehicles and several motorcycles.
Lake Flores is actually one of the mainstay tourism Flores. To reach the lake, located about 51 kilometers east of the town of Ende, tourists can use the vehicle from Ende, also can use the bus intercity.scenery in the region is very charming. Thick white fog that moves slowly cover the top of Mount Kelimutu (approximately 1,640 meters above sea level) is a very typical sight around three colored lake at the summit of the mountain.
In the area of Lake Kelimutu many things that can be found, which if managed optimally will surely be able to attract tourists, both domestic and foreign.
When empty the situation, the atmosphere will be silent and drab. We're just going to see a stretch of land with a number of green plants, in addition to witnessing the amazing color changes all three lakes. However, do not expect no adequate explanation or information about the natural wonders of the lake and the lake region.Di there is only one board is "entitled" Changes in Nature, Eternal Faith. However, the board was also the condition is untreated, scarred hands of ignorant which eliminates a number of letters. The information given is only an outline around the legend, there is no scientific explanation.
Three lakes are located adjacent to each other was also "not named". On the east side, there are two lakes, the water of each green and dark brown. For green lake, the lake is usually called by the spirits of young people (Tiwu nua muri ko'o fai). The dark brown spirit lake called soothsayer or a bad guy (Tiwu ata polo). On the west side of the lake there is a moss green or dark, which is commonly called the ghost lake parent (Tiwu Ata Mbupu).
A number of the suspect, change the color of the water in the lake due to Kelimutu volcano activity, refracting sunlight, the micro biota water, the dissolved chemical substances, as well as due to the reflection color of the walls and bottom of the lake. A brief explanation that the water color changes to blue-white (now green) is made possible by changes in the chemical composition of the water crater due to changes in volcanic gases, or may also be due to rising temperatures.
Meanwhile, the increasing concentration of iron (Fe) in the fluid causes the red color to black (dark brown now). The most green species possible from specific biota .about the wall of separation between Tiwu nua muri ko'o fai with Tiwu ata polo is given a brief explanation that the geology of the corner, the wall of the lake is the most unstable. With the adjacent position, especially if there is an earthquake with large scale, it is possible both lakes will menyatu.Selain that, given the Flores Island including seismic area, necessary studies to be able to inform travelers on where to shelter locations when around Lake Kelimutu .
