Photos of Indonesia’s Striking Tri-Colored Crater Lakes at Kelimutu

If you’re a sucker for natural wonders of the world and are constantly in search of places to add to your photography bucket list, you might want to look at paying a visit to Kelimutu, a volcano in Indonesia. It’s known for the three crater lakes found at its summit, which are close in proximity but very different in appearance.

The three lakes are named Tiwu Ata Mbupu, Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai, and Tiwu Ata Polo, which translate to Lake of Old People, Lake of Young Men and Maidens, and Bewitched or Enchanted Lake, respectively.

The “young people” and enchanted lakes appear together most frequently in photographs, as they are close in proximity and share a crater wall. Tourists who stand on the middle edge of these lakes can capture photographs showing the two bodies of water of strikingly different colors.
