Responsible tourism: Kelimutu Crater Lakes eco lodge, Indonesia

Environment

Situated beside a river in a lovely valley nestled in the forest, this exquisite lodge with beautiful views of the mountains is mainly solar powered for electricity and some hot water, recycles all sewage through reed beds, attempts to separate and recycle some of its waste, grows some of its own food, uses local produce, supports local women’s weaving groups. The lodge is also a great base for hikers, birders, weavers, artists and anyone who loves mountain scenery.

Energy. The Lodge is 100% solar energy powered on sunny days. A solar energy system supplied by Solar Power Indonesia costing over $ 70,000 is essential in the non air conditioning environment to augment very poor local supplies.

Community

This is a local community lodge; built by the community for the benefit of the community and funded entirely by profits from our other eco lodges in other parts of Indonesia where key staff were trained. All staff are local residents of the village of Moni (except the Operations Manager who comes from nearby Maumere).

The lodge supports local tourist businesses (bird guides, vehicle charter) and works with the Kelimutu Crater Lakes National Park to bring more income for betterment of this unique and wonderful park with its famous crater lakes which change colour and are woven into the spiritual history of the community.

Local crafts. We support women weavers in a local village by purchasing their product for our shop and bringing tours to see them. We purchase almost 100% locally or food and drinks

We have just purchased the rice padis accrossthe river of whioch 50% production goes to the local people. This land is also protected.
