Introducing Bajawa

Framed by forested volcanoes and blessed with a pleasant climate, Bajawa, a laid-back hill town at 1100m, is a great base from which to explore dozens of traditional villages that are home to the local Ngada people. Bajawa is the Ngada’s de facto trading post, and you’ll mingle with them as you stroll these quiet streets edged by blooming gardens. Gunung Inerie (2245m), a perfectly conical volcano looms to the south where you’ll also find some hot springs. The recently emerged volcano, Wawo Muda, with its Kelimutu-esque lakes, is another favourite among the trans-Flores set.
