( 5 days 4 nights )
Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara

Sumba enters the group of the Lesser Sunda Islands in the province of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The largest city of the island is Waingapu, located on the east side. 

Sumba is about twice the size of Bali. The island has long been famous for its strong roots in traditional culture of megaliths, weaving, and horse riding. Moreover, all acts of life must be in line with ancient rules and customs of the Sumba people. 

Although various cities in Sumba have modernized, once you get out of those cities, the nuances abruptly change. The aura of tradition will capture you. 

SpektakelPlesir! facilitates a trip to Sumba where you will live in with the village community of Rende in East Sumba. A typical Sumba village that still embraces its traditions. You may learn to ride a horse the Sumba way, make natural dyes, or help prepare traditional rituals. Feel Sumba in your body and soul.
