The treck to the waterfall was pretty demanding, the water was yellow and muddy in the rainy season. Nevertheless it was a good outing from Labuan Bajo.

I read a few negative reviews before deciding to go and check it out with my family from Labuan Bajo. We grabbed a few bikes and road the 45 minutes through amazing countryside and hills with epic views of Flores. On arrival in what felt like the middle of nowhere the locals were there awaiting a few vistors to show... More

Warning, this waterfall is not worth the price, the time, and the trouble to reach it! The two of us ended up paying more than a million rupiahs to the tour agency and the entrance fees and the guide fee (make sure you know how much), hours of riding on a mini mini bus, hours of treking muddy, slippery, and...

I heard there is a better one just a little bit further. The water in the river is not really beautiful nor clear and you can not reach the waterfall itself... The trek was really nice though (1h)

It's really easy to find and about 1 hour drive from Labuan Bajo. Follow yhe toad to Rutang and then at some point you see signs for the waterfall to the left which bring you to a 4km road which is not the best road but still easy to ride. Maximus who was working at the tourist office asked us... More

We hiked in to Cunca Wulang accompanied by a village guide paying 200,000 rupiah for the service and consider it money well spent! We are always mindful that we hopped on a plane from our country to come and enjoy the differences that another country offers...we have the option to take something for nothing or to be able to be...

Be aware of the village people that offer you to be your guide. One of them tried to cheat us and wanted 200 000 rupiah for guiding 2 people down and up again which took around 2-3 hrs. Normally you should not pay more than 100 000 for one guide. The hike through the jungle is actually quite nice. Unfortunately... More

I went through a lot of reviews on TripAdvisor before I headed for the waterfall. Many ppl complained about the local guides of pushing tourists to hire them with a over-high rate. In terms of my personal experience today, it was totally awesome. It took us a while to find the right branch road to the waterfall by scooter, but... More

The waterfall is easily accessible by taking a motorcycle and a 30-45min hike. The trekking trail is not very demanding but some parts are tricky due to the terrain and missing paths (jumping on stones to pass the a small river etc.). Please take care with the slippery stones! Unfortunately, we were not able to take a single picture of... More
