After several years of working and exploring a few places in East Nusa Tenggara, The Weekuri Lake is one place I heard in recent years. Though the lake is located not more than 500 meters from the beach Watu Mandorak, which I have visited a few years earlier. The information I have is that this Lake just widely known in recent years, even heard that access to this location is not even known by the general public. I did not even manage to get a story about the lakes, That means even the near by resident of Kodi village in Sumba Barat Daya (Southwest Sumba) didn’t even know about the mysterious beauty

It takes about 2 hour drive from Tambulaka to reach the Weekuri Lake is not as easy as if traveling in Java or Bali. In addition to road infrastructure as one of the obstacles, roads signs to the lake is also inadequate to guide travelers to the location. Fortunately most hotel manager can provide simple guidelines to reach it.

Standing on the rock that separates the lake’s with the Indian Ocean, I could hear the sound of water breaking through the rocks beneath me every time a big wave hit the reef. On the left side where coral rocks did not seem to converge, I tried to peek to find out what happened from the voices. It turns out there are coral under the small cracks that allow the entry of sea water into the lake, especially in times of high tide.
