The land of Sumba is indeed endowed with a natural charm that is so beautiful and different from other natural beauty in Indonesia. The natural topography is dominated by a series of mountains and limestone hills, making the nature in East Sumba unique and exotic, and of courseit is different from other districts in East Nusa Tenggara. One of them is Wairinding Hill. The hill, which has started being crowded with tourists since it has become one of the shooting locations for the film directed by Mira Lesmana in the film " Pendekar Tongkat Emas ", does have a very beautiful hilly landscape. If you visit the land of East Sumba, you will feel like you have found a piece of heaven that lies between the hills. Wairinding is located in the village of Pambota Jara, Pandawai District or about 30 minutes from the downtown of East Sumba. This hill looks amazing with its vast grassland vegetation.
Wairinding Hill is so beautiful and very enchanting; it makes the eyes of the visitors look at the hill on and on. The vast expanse of savanna will be yellow during the dry season and green during the rainy season. Visiting Wairinding Hill in both seasons will certainly give a different impression. If visitors come in the dry season between July and October, the natural atmosphere there will feel like being in Africa, with its exotic savanna. It's different if visitors come in the rainy season, they will feel the atmosphere like in the hills of New Zealand when arriving at this hill. Wairinding Hill is an appropriate place for visitors who want to enjoy the silence and beauty that is still very natural.

It is recommended for visitors who want to visit the hill to bring food supplies, especially drinks because the weather in East Sumba is very hot during the day.
