Mount KELIMUTU and the 3 color of  LAKE

————————————————————————————————————–

Mount Kelimutu is an active volcano. Inside the huge crater complex are three lakes filled with water of different colors, respectively burgundy red, pale green and dark blue. The mountain is located at the back of Mount Kelibara, in the Wolowaru district, in the Ende regency of central Flores. Keli means mountain and Mutu means boiling. In short, it means volcano.

To the local people, this mountain is holy, and a token of God’s blessings. It provides fertility to the surrounding lands. It is both heaven and the hell t the people of Lio Ende.

Many travelers and scientists, have written about Kelimutu since it was discovered by Van Suchtelen, a Dutch government officer, in 1915. Father Bouman published an article in 1929, which the name Kelimutu known all aver the world. Since then, many researchers  and tourist have come, as wel as the Governor General of Batavia (Jakarta)

To get to the lakes, one follows the road from Moni, the proceed to the crater’s top. Near the crater rim was a bungalow, which has now been dismantled.

The eruption of 1928 caused many victims and much damage. In 1938 there was another eruption, coming from Tiwu Ata Koo Fai Noo, Ata Nuwa muri (the lake of youth0. the biggest took place in 1968, in which the water in the lakes was shot 10 meters high into the sky.

The peak of Kelimutu itself is 1.690 meters high,, and its lake crater 1..410 . other geological data are as follows: Tiwu Ata polo ( the lake of Evil has a sloping wall, 150 meters high. The lake is 380 by 280 meters large and 64 meters deep. The volume of the water is about 446.000 cubic meters. Tiwu Ata Koo Fai Hoo and Ta Nuwa Muri (the lake of youth) has walls 128 meters high. The lake is 430 by 300 square meters large an 127 meters deep with a water content of about 500.000 cubic meters. Tiwu Ata Bupu (the lake of the old) has two layers of walls, 240 meters high. The lake covers a surface of 300 by 280 square meters. The water is 67 meters deep and 345.000 cubi9c meters in volume. The total water content of the three lakes amounts to 1,3 milion cubic meters.

In the last three to five years, the lakes of Kelimutu have changed in color, a phenomenon caused by the geological and chemical processes in the bottom and walls of the lakes. It could also have resulted from changes in the bacteria and microorganism populations due to changes in temperature.

Another theory proposed by village elders, is that there has actually been no change at all, but that the effect is due to optical illusions.

There are two ways to reach kelimutu. The first is to fly from Ende by Twin otter, then go by car fro a distance of about 66 kilometers. The second way is to fly from Maumere by twin Otter. Then go by car to kelimutu for a distance of 1113  kilometers via the villages Watuneso, Wolowaru and Moni.
