Flores

200

Centuries ago Portuguese explorers named the island "Cabo das Flora" (Cape of Flowers) after the abundant coral reefs in the surrounding seas. Today Flores is dotted with small villages inhabited by people of mixed ethnic origin who rely on traditional farming and fishing for survival. This mountainous island boasts no less than 14 active volcanoes and the most breathtaking scenery can be found at the three crater lakes beneath the rim of Keli Mutu volcano. Each lake is a different color as a result of their varying dissolving minerals and oxygen levels. When set against the surrounding rugged terrain, the view is nothing short of spectacular.
