Ranamese, a mountainous natural reserve (Taman Wisata Alam), impresses with its dense forests and a 21-meter-deep crater lake at an altitude of 1220m. Ranamese is ideal for those who want to explore the Florinese highlands by trekking. It is also a perfect place for bird watchers.

On the road from Bajawa to Ruteng visit this beautifull lake. You need a small portion of luck when arriving. When the lake is covered in a fog there is not much to see. I could imagine that this will be disappointed. But if the...More

A nice enough lake but the 100k entrance fee is outrageous. Generally speaking, local/foreigner pricing tiers are understandable but needs to be kept within reason. Could do with some litter-picking.

This makes a nice trip out of town. The road from Ruteng is beautiful. It cost us $400000 for four of us to see the lake which is ridiculous for Indonesia. I would expect 10 times less! The lake is pretty but essentially nothing special....More

From the mouton you should have a nice view on the lake. However, the made a huge concrete wall. Behind the wall as could be expected is a mess of plastic and stinking garbage.
