Ranamese, a mountainous natural reserve (Taman Wisata Alam), impresses with its dense forests and a 21-meter-deep crater lake at an altitude of 1220m. Ranamese is ideal for those who want to explore the Florinese highlands by trekking. It is also a perfect place for bird watchers. Ranamese Lake is situated in the middle of forest, surrounded by a lush vegetation of mosses, scrubs, tropical woods, and water plants. The climate is comfortably fresh. Its calm and clear water makes it easy to spot freshwater fish. Other prominent animals around the lake are the wild macaques.
If you wish to visit a nearby village, Teber in Golo Rutuk, about 6km from Ranamese, is a nice place to drop by. The road to Golo Rutuk is in a bad condition, though, and it is rather difficult to reach by car. To make the most out of your trip, you may want to arrange your visit with the local rangers. The forest is dense, and the rangers can also provide you with the local knowledge about the flora and fauna of Ranamese. Alternatively, you can contact the local tour operators to help you arrange a full excursion in advance.
