Kelimutu (pronounced [kəliˈmutu]) is a volcano, close to the small town of Moni in central Flores island in Indonesia. The volcano is around 50 km to the east of Ende, Indonesia, the capital of Ende regency in East Nusa Tenggara province.

The mountain has three crater lakes which differ in color. Their colors periodically and unpredictably change due to a chemical reaction, apparently independent from each other and from the volcano’s activity. Between January and November 2016, the colors of the craters changed six times.
