(Green Season)

In this 6D5N photography expedition workshop, we are excited to show you the best of Sumba, also known as the Eastern Lesser Sunda Islands; is home to one of the most interesting tribal societies of the Nusa Tenggara Timur, the archipelago of the eastern islands, which revolves around the cult of the marupu (generic term to define all spiritual forces, deities, spirits and ancestors). Sumba, from the morphological point of view, looks very different from the volcanic islands located further north, with a landscape characterized by the presence of low limestone hills, rice fields and fields of corn and cassava. 

Sumba Island is a bit challenging to get to, but once you are there, everything will feel worth it. This mostly savanna-covered land will make it easier for photographers to enjoy the view of the ocean from every direction.

The must-shoot locations e.g. Walakiri Beach, Praijing Megalithic Village, WatuParunu beach, Puru Kambera Savanna, Tenggedu Waterfall and many more bringing you to places that only hardcore photographers go; capturing scenes that make up the best of Sumba.


Waimarang Waterfall, a picturesque waterfall surrounded by lush vegetation. To get to this waterfall, we need to trek 20-30 minutes down the hill, cross a small river and walk to another hill. When we arrive, we are like in the different world. 

A cultural gem that provides a glimpse into the timeless traditions and architecture of Sumba. This village has become the pride of the Indonesian for decades. Once arriving we may see 38 traditional villages houses directly. The locals call these houses ‘Uma Mbatangu’ or ‘Uma Bokulu’, which means ‘the big house’.
