High in the jungle mountains of Flores Island in Indonesia at an altitude of 4,200 ft. is one of the last remaining ancient and isolated villages in the world. Called Wae Rebo, the village has been occupied by the Manggaraian people for almost 2,000 years. There are eight traditional conical thatched homes called Mbaru Tembong that are occupied by one or more families. Subsisting on agriculture products like taro, coffee, vegetables and jungle meat, their lifestyle has changed little in two millennia. Visiting Wae Rebo is permitted, but extremely difficult to find and get to in the mountains.
