Welcome to Bajawa
Framed by forested volcanoes and blessed with a cooler climate, Bajawa is a laid-back and predominantly Catholic hill town. Perched at 3600ft (1100m) above sea level, it's the de facto trading post of the Ngada people and a great base from which to visit dozens of traditional villages or to stay put and enjoy the setting. Gunung Inerie, a perfectly conical volcano, looms to the south, where you’ll also find active hot springs. Wawo Muda is another favorite thanks to its Kelimutu-esque lake, left behind after an eruption in 2001.
