|The little and painful bemo with our guide.|
|Ata Bupu the dark lake for old people|
|Blue lake for young people.|
|The offering and prayers to up ease the gods.|
|ROUGH BUSY ROADS|
|And back at the car park having a chat with the local|
merchants of goods we did not want to buy.
They even had letters in English telling us how wonderful
their goods are and that we should buy.
|The many trips the "Boys" have made to arrange this trip...Thanks|
|Just a quick visit to the local market to buy some green food.|
One thing every dog was expecting puppies or just had puppies. No exception
The trip was amazing after passing many beautiful rice fields unmade roads with no bridges we got to the top where we stopped to give offerings and prayers. Our guide did that. He said that every time he forgot the lakes were covered with clouds and invisible.
We stopped at the car park for a little while to pick up our coffee man who carried the coffee all the way to the top.
It is believed that spirits come to Kelimutu when people die. The Mae – spirit would leave it’s village and come to stay at Kelimutu forever so it is a sacred place. Which lake the spirit would enter depends on age and its spirit when alive. The lakes look like colorful paint and change color without any prior natural clues. It is no wonder this mystical place has become a legend. The lakes were truly beautiful very big and very deep. There were some monkeys on the way too. After having our coffee at the top we came back to the car park for another session with our bemo. Great trip and great memories…
|Lots of rice fields on the way to Kelimutu.Beautiful really.|
