DAY 1: ARRIVE IN TAMBOLAKA – RATENGGARO – BEACH BWANNA

Upon arrival at the airport of Tambolaka in Waitabula, meet the guide and we will begin the Sumba tour. First we will visit the traditional village Ratenggaro in the Kodi area. Here we will see the traditional high rooftops houses (there are actually the highest rooftops in whole Sumba) made traditionally and all by hand. This village is one of a just a few traditional villages left in the area. The village looks like just a small compound of some houses but house can accommodate up to 50 family members. In the harvesting season most of the villagers will stay in their field to work. The elders and children will stay in the village during this time.

Just a 5 minute ride from this village we can enjoy a view over the ocean. Locals normally walk their horses and cows to the area so be sure to have your camera ready for some good shots.

From Ratenggaro we will drive to visit the secret beach of Watu Malandong and Bwanna where you have the beautiful view of both beaches from one point. We go down on both of the beaches and enjoy the beauty from a different point of view. The beach of Bwanna is a long clear and colorful sand beach. The beach is located under a majestic cliff heading to the Indian Ocean which makes this place extraordinary. Whilst the beauty is unquestionable, this beach is still unknown by most tourists, which makes it almost private and very clean. Enjoy the day in a quiet beach till the sunset and transfer back to the hotel.

DAY 3: LA POPU WATERFALL – PRAIJING VILLAGE – TARUNG/WAITABAR

Today we will start our trip to visit the La Popu waterfall. The waterfall La Popu is a natural waterfall that is located in Manupeu Tanah Daru National Park, this waterfall consists of plenty of steeply slopes. The slopes rise from the sea reaching a height of 600 meters. Unlike the other waterfalls in Sumba, Lapopu is very famous and often visited by the locals because it is not hard to reach. Our trip continues to the village Praijing, a traditional village uphill surrounded by lots of greenery. This is one of the few villages where we can actually have a beautiful overview of the entire village and draw an idea how the village is created. When we  walk around the village we will see that the elders occupy most of the houses and the kids are always around to share their smiles. From Praijing, we will make a short visit to yet two other villages named Tarung – Waitabar. Both villages are located next to each other (literally!) and are still very much alive. These villages are located inside the capital of Waikabubak, and the villagers still are practicing what they practice since the old times, a clear example of how tradition can persist inside a more modern city. After the visit to the villages our Sumba travelling for the day is done and we head back to the hotel.
