After a simple breakfast we will continue the Sumba tour. We will go to village Prailiang, a traditional village in east of Sumba. The village was built on a rocky hilltop to keep out of sight from coastal slave traders back in the day. The village was built in two rows and the houses have the traditional Sumbanese rooftops. Spend some time to walk around the village and communicate with the locals who still live in the village while enjoying the stunning local houses and nice woodcarving alongside their beautiful and shy smiles. We will continue our Sumba tour to the savannah of Wairinding, on the way we will make a short stop in Puru Kambera Beach. This beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in East Sumba, we can go for a swim or sunbath and have a picnic lunch. After the beach we will proceed to visit the savannah of Wairinding, known by the local as Bukit Wairinding. Here we can enjoy the unlimited greenery of the hills and the view from on top is as far as the eye can see. After this full day of exploring Sumba we head back to enjoy some well deserved rest.
