Cunca Wulang Canyon -located 30 km on the east of Labuan Bajo- lies in a tropical rainforest area. It is one of Flores’ most lovely spots for outdoor activities. Impressive waterfalls cascade into beautiful, fresh-water pools. And they lead into a series of smaller waterfalls and rivers a few kilometers downstream.
In recent years, Cunca Wulang has gained popularity as an excellent destination. Not to mention it already reached popular outdoor sport community such as canyoning. No wonder the place itself has become the leading preferable place for canyoning.
Even if canyoning is not your favorite sport, we shall opt for other choices. As the area does obviously offer good hiking and swimming options.
