Sumba Island


Sumba, natively also spelt as Humba or Hubba (in Sumba languages) is an Indonesian island located in Eastern Indonesia and administratively part of the East Nusa Tenggara provincial territory. The largest town on the island is the main port of Waingapu with a population of 70,060 (including the adjoining district of Kambera) in mid-2022. Besides the natural attractions such as beaches, lakes, waterfalls and stunning savanna hills, Sumba is known for its culture that is still well preserved.

One of their popular cultural events is Pasola, held by the Western Sumbanese to herald a good rice harvest. During the event, we can see the traditional war game between two groups of villagers on horseback throwing blunted wooden spears at their opponents to dismount one another and demonstrate their horse-riding skills.



Pick up from Tambolaka Airport and head off for lunch before we explore the western part of Sumba Island. The first place we will be checking out is the Ratenggaro Traditional Village – It is probably the most well-known village in Sumba. The unique thatched roof shape of the houses is easily spotted from afar. We will spend some time here to see how the locals live here.

After that, we will head to Weekuri Lake or Lagoon where the water is so clear that we can see the bottom from the lake surface. Although it seems to be separated from the sea, the water tastes salty. We can swim here or just relax by the lake. From the lake, we will move on to the white sandy Mandorak Beach for the sunset which has become another must-to-go place in Southwest Sumba Regency in Indonesia. Dinner along the way back to our accommodation.


After breakfast, get ready to do some trekking to get to the unique waterfall that is located in the middle of the paddy field, Weekacura. It can be a bit muddy and slippery, hence, a shoe or sandal with good grip is most recommended! Depending on the water debit during that day of the visit, we may or may not be able to swim. However, enjoying the view of the waterfall itself is already kind of unforgettable memory.

Next, we will stop at Prai Ijing Traditional Village which is strategically situated 3 kilometres away from the central town of West Sumba Regency, Waikabubak. Since the traditional village is located in the highly elevated area of Waikabubak, its visitors can enjoy the scenery of rice paddy fields from above. There are 37 out of 42 traditional houses that survived the fire dated back in year 2000. 

The scenery of the endless rolling hills of Warinding is our next stop to go. I hope the weather is good and the sky is clear so that we can watch the sunset over the hills!


The sight of Morinda Hill in Waingapu is probably one of the views that we wish to wake up to every morning. Enjoying the view from the top of the hill of Tanarara is another one that we shall not miss. After freshening up our eyes with the green scenery, it is time to pull up our stamina for about 20-30 minutes hike to Waimarang Waterfall. The crystal clear water in the unique U-shape pool under the fall is stunning.

From here, we will continue to Walakiri Beach. Walakiri Beach is one of many beautiful beaches in East Sumba that has a unique mangrove with white sand adorned with coconut trees that provide shade and a cosy atmosphere when visitors walk along the beach. When the sun sets, the combination of the colour of the twilight sky and the silhouette of mangrove trees looks truly artistic and photogenic to be photographed from all directions.


Today we will see the great savannah in Sumba, Puru Kambera, with the background of the ocean. During the dry season, the savannah with dry grasses with scarce trees around offers a different kind of scenery as opposed to green grassland during the wet season. We might see the local Sumba horse breed feeding on the grasses while we are there.

Next, we will head to Tanggedu Waterfall. Unlike previous waterfalls that visited, Tanggedu waterfall is a canyon, a deep gorge with a river flowing through it. Surrounded by unique rock contours with blueish colour water viewed at the right hour, the view of the fall is a lovely natural wonder. Put your feet in the water, and enjoy the rush of cool water as it runs over them.

Enjoy your lunch after all the fun. Before heading back to our accommodation in Waingapu, we will slow down by enjoying the panoramic view of the sunset at Tanau. Clear our mind, rest our eyes with the greenery, one last time before heading home the next day.
