I went here in the middle of the day. Quite hot and windy. But the landscape is nice. Should visit during sunset. I think it will be more beautiful.

These hills are gorgeous. A bit of a drive from Waingapu but totally worth it. I went at midday so it was super hot but still beautiful. I hiked away from the main ridge and found myself surrounded by green, bald hills and totally alone....More

I came to Wairinding for my pre-wedding photoshoot at sunrise and it was wonderful. I suggest you to come on dry season when the grass are yellowish and you will get that "western American" look. If you come on the rainy season, the grass are...More
