Moni is a picturesque village sprinkled with upcountry rice fields, ringed by soaring volcanic peaks and blessed with distant sea views. It’s a slow-paced, easy-going, cool breeze of a town that serves as a gateway to Kelimutu. On clear, dark moon nights, you'll walk the silent streets beneath a black dome universe. The turn-off to Kelimutu is 2km west of town. The Monday market, held on the soccer pitch, is a major local draw and a good place to snare local ikat.
