5 Days 4 Nights Highlights Of Sumba

The Highlights of Sumba

What to Expect:

Surrounded by white sandy beaches, Sumba is an extraordinarily unspoiled island of long-held heritage. Though this hidden gem is only an hour’s flight east from the major tourist hub of Bali, the island doesn’t get many western visitors. This  allows the locals to sustain their traditional customs. However, Sumba may not be off-the-beaten-track much longer as hoteliers start to notice the astounding beauty of the island. So, travel now and get ready to be amazed by the raw beauty of Sumba.

During this 5-day trip, you will explore the highlights of Sumba; the wild beaches, the undulating hills where lush greenery meets untamed landscapes, and the stunning waterfalls, and go back in time to the age of tribal villages and ancient rituals.

 

Highlights:

Visit Sumba traditional villages.

Admire the stunning Bokota Katura, Waikelo Sawah, Lapopu, Waimarang, and Tangedu Waterfalls.

Marvel at the sunrise view from the top of Tanarara Hill.

Visit the breathtaking wild white powdery sand beaches in contrast with the crystal-clear turquoise water.
