Unique Salt Water Cave of Rangko Island, East Nusa Tenggara

Caves have been explored throughout history. In prehistory they were used for shelter, burial, or as religious sites. Today researches study caves because they can reveal details of past climatic conditions. Cavers explore them for the enjoyment of the activity or for physical exercise. For the less adventurous, a number of the most beautiful underground caves have been converted into show caves, where artificial lighting, floors, and other aids allow the casual tourist to experience the cave with minimal inconvenience

Rangko in the region of East Nusa Tenggara is a town in Indonesia – some 911 mi (or 1,467 km) East of Jakarta, the country’s capital city. Little known fact: Flores’s new adventure is in its saltwater cave in Rangko. It’s hidden in the northwestern corner of the Rangko Bay, which is riddled with freshwater springs that flow through mazes of limestone passageways. Few people ever witness the strange sights of these underwater chambers—fossils, sunlight beaming in from holes in the cave ceilings, and even ancient mastodon tusks—because the only way to see it all is by donning a mask and flippers. Cave diving is rife with potential dangers as its located in remote area. The good news is beyond good training, all it really necessitates is a little nerve.

Test the waters at Rangko Cave. There you can see water’s artwork in the limestone formations and feel the force of 30-plus million gallons of water per day pouring out of the inner cave entrance. A mineral deposit that hangs from the ceiling of a limestone cave is traversed by a smooth underwater salt lake.
