Sumba 2/4 - Rumah Budaya, Prai Ijing Village, Lapopu Waterfall and Wairinding Hill

"Those who are destined to meet will eventually do so."

Beautiful view at Wairinding Hill
Day 3 - Saturday, 13 October 2018

We stayed already at Rumah Budaya and this Rumah Budaya is actually part of itinerary because they have museum to learn some of Sumba's cultures. There are 2 building for the museum but at that time there was only one museum that opened. 

The guide of the museum telling us some stories of Sumba Cultures, he said most of Sumba's people still uphold the Animism belief or they call it Marapu. For the traditional house, you can see if the house has an unique shape like they have high roof. It's separate from 3 parts, lower part for animals, middle part for human and higher part for the harvest.

Sumba 1/4 - Bwana Beach, Ratenggaro Village and Weekuri Lagoon

The more you travel to the East, 
it's way moreeee beautiful to see in Indonesia, 
this journey proves it and how proud I am! 
'Azure Window' at Sumba Island, Bwana Beach :D
I still have my annual leaves in 2018 like 8 days so I decided to join my friends to Sumba Island, we join open trip and the trip itself took 5 days 4 nights. Sumba Island is part of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT-Nusa Tenggara Timur) province in Indonesia. It's my first time exploring East Indonesia, the east that I ever been maybe Makassar. This time trip to Sumba Island from Thursday 11th - Tuesday 16th of October, 2018 (6D/5N). Start from Tambolaka Airport and end up at Waingapu Airport so from West Sumba to East Sumba, transit at Bali. At first I was a bit worry because there were earthquake at Lombok (next to Bali), and the aftershock were happened so many times like hundred times, and there were also earthquake and also Tsunami at Palu (Center Sulawesi). And few days before we go to Sumba, there were earthquake near Sumba so I have my doubt to continue this journey or not, I tried to not overthink that and keep going.

Day 1 - Thursday, 11 October 2018

We decided to go earlier than schedule, the flight from Jakarta to Bali (transit) then to Sumba Island, Tambolaka Airport. My flight was at 7.45 AM from Jakarta (CGK) to Denpasar, Bali (DPS) about 2 hours then at 12.50 fly to Waikabubak, Sumba Island at Tambolaka Airport (TMC) flight took an hour and 10 minutes. The airplanes from DPS was small and it was my first time using Garuda Indonesia in small version, anyway we took Garuda Indonesia, I bought the flight for Rp 1,031,500 such a good deal.
