❰ WAE RABO ❱ Want to experience something raw, adventurous and cultural? Why not take on the 3 hour hike through thick rainforest to this tribal village! You must undergo a welcoming ceremony at the main drumhouse to calm the spirits before getting your cameras out and snapping away though! #wearepangaea ⠀⠀

📷 // @ali_olfat // 'Before leaving Wae Rebo, I found a chart outside one of the houses showing how fast it’s growing as a tourist destination. The rise in economic welfare has contributed to clean water, solar power, and better education. Seeing that was good reinforcement that what we’re doing is helping.'
➽ You'll find this remarkable village just over a hundred kilometres from Labuan Bajo, in the forestes of western Flores. The seven come-shaped homes are built from grass, wood and of course bamboo; the village is the heart of Manggarai culture.
