  1. Three-colored Lake of Mount Kelimutu

Located on the island of Flores, East Nusa Tenggara, the uniqueness of this mountain is its crater lake at its peak which is known as a three-color lake, for its blue, red and white hues. However, the color of the lake can change over a period of time. According to researchers, the cause of random changes is the geochemical processes at the bottom of the lake that produce certain chemical substances in the water.
