Solor is an island in East Nusa Tenggara in Indonesia.

Understand[edit]

Solor is close to Larantuka and south of the island of Adonara. It stretches east to west and is dominated by a few peaks.

Get in[edit]

There are daily wooden boats from Larantuka both to the western and eastern parts of Solor.

From Waiwerang in Adonara you can hire a local fisherman to take you across. It takes half an hour and should cost no more than 50000 one way for the whole boat (4-5 people max). Monday and Thursday are the best days when Solor people go to the market in Waiwerang.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

The village of Lamakera in the easternmost part of Solor is a picturesque fishing village famous for its salt production. It is 100% Muslim unlike the surrounding areas. There is no accommodation, so you will have to rely on Muslim hospitality.

The village of Wuabunga is less than one hour away from Lamakera up a walking path in the hills. The village has a "museum" where a mysterious human skull is kept in a cave. Ask for Bapak Rajat to show it to you. He swears it was found a long time ago and no scientist has taken a look yet. However the locals made a sign for the so-called museum. If you continue further uphill from Wuabunga to the village of Tanah Werang, you can come back to Lamakera down a different way.

On the northern cost at Menanga there is a Portuguese fortress. Solor was one of the first places the Portuguese settled in the area. Reachable by ojek from Lamakera.
