Enjoy : Tengku Lesi Water Fall in Rahong – Flores

October 6, 2016

Rencently this year, around May I went to  Tengku Lesi. It is a water fall which located in Rahong, a little town in Manggarai Flores Indonesia. Flores is the most facinating and beautiful island. Long hidden in the shadow of its more famous neighbor Bali., the island is finally emerging as a unique destination of its own


Some of tourism spot in Flores

There are a lot of places you can enjoy while visit Flores, Komodo island is the most populer one. But on this blog post I will tell you one of great tourism spot you should visit, Tengku Lesi. Tengku Lesi is also known as Cunca Lega. Cunca is a Manggarai language for Water Fall and Lega is the name of one  of Manggarai’s famous regent. People there told us Lega has given as name to honor the regent. I go there with my boyfriend and also my friend Echan and her boyfriend.

The journey from Ruteng to Cunca Lega is not that far, around 1 hours by motorcycle then around 15 minutes on foot. We started from Ruteng around 11:00 am and arrived at Nanu around 12:00pm. Tengku Lesi  is located in Nanu Vilage.  Don’t worry of lost. You can ask people, where is the exact location. They will gladly tell you where. We asked a lot people in the street for sure. After one hour motorcycle ride, we arrived in Nanu. We parked our  motorcycle in a field   near SDK Nanu, one of elementary school there. Suddenly Bunch of Kids came near us  and offered their self to guide us to the Water fall.  Tips for you, don’t forget to bring snack and share with the kids. And don’t forget to gave them money as tip for guiding you to the water fall. Yes we have to walk from Nanu to Cunca. The road is extreme and difficult.  You have to climb the road. I think I don’t want to walk through that road again. But the view are worth every drop of tears. So worth to try before you die, I guess.

Look at the picture, yes we walk that far. And we climb that high.


Although the road is difficult you will find your self so happy when you arrive there like us. The water fall is so beautiful.

(Be carefull if you take photo like this. The big rock was so slippery. You have to do it slowly if you don’t want to fall on the rock.)

If you want to go there, it be better to go in the morning, because in the day the rain always fall. We decided to went  home at 02:00 Pm because the dark clouds have appeared. Actually there are still a lot of water fall in Manggarai and Cunca Lega is one you should visit if you come here in Flores XD
