They are also happy to talk with visitors and try to communication in English, as they learn it there. Next on our adventure will be the Lapopu Waterfall. After a drive through the endless hilly and green land- scape of Sumba, you will arrive nearby the waterfall. To visit the waterfall, you will need to do a small hike of approximately 15 minutes and cross a bamboo bridge to get there.
