Fulan Fehan is a valley at the foot of Mt. Lakaan with a very wide savanna or grassland. This valley is located in Dirun Village, Lamaknen District, Belu Regency, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), about 26 Km from Atambua, the capital of Belu Regency. The attraction of the Fulan Fehan grassland is that there are many free-roaming horses, thriving cactus trees and a vast expanse of savanna that the eyes cannot reach. In addition, not far from this valley, there are several historical objects.
To reach Fulan Fehan grassland, there are two routes to be chosen. First, it’s through Dirun Village and second, it’s through Maudemu Village. From these two villages, someone can go to Fulan Fehan by walking for approximately 4 kilometers. When they get there, they will see a vast meadow as far as the eyes can see. The eyes are increasingly spoiled by the presence of a group of horses that are free to roam. There are also cows, goats, and buffalos that are deliberately grazed. There, there is a kind of natural spring that is a source of life for the livestock. Uniquely, despite having a temperature that tends to be cold, reaching 21 degrees Celsius, many cactus trees thrive here. In this tourism attraction, tourists can enjoy the view by sitting and relaxing on the grass and they can run after hordes of farm animals.
Not far from Fulan Fehan, there are also several other interesting attractions to visit. There is Kikit Gewen Fort which is covered in a kind of small forest. In the past, this fort was used as a place to set strategy.
There is also Fort Rana Hitu or known as Fort Lapis 7. This fort was used during traditional wars between tribes in the interior of Timor (now Timor Leste). It’s known that this fort was made in just seven days and seven nights. To be able to enjoy the green grass of Fulan Fehan, visitors may come here during the rainy season from November to April. This is the best time. During the dry season, the grass dries up and the temperature is a bit hot. So, if you can have time for vacation, you are recommended to visit Fulan Fehan grassland in East Nusa Tenggara.
