From this village we go to the La Popu waterfall. The waterfall La Popu is a natural waterfall that is located inManupeu Tanah Daru National Park, this waterfall consists plenty of steepy slopes. The slopes rise from the sea reaching height of 600 meters. Unlike the other waterfall in Sumba, Lapopu is very famous and often visited by the locals because the location is not hard to reach.Our trip continues to the village Praijing, a traditional village uphill surrounded by lots of greenery.
