One of the highlights of Flores is its very varied scenery with many mountains and valleys. The mountains cover Flores almost completely, extending from west to east. There are several volcanoes of which a number are still active. The highest peak on Flores is Poco Ngandonalu, a 2367m high volcano near Ruteng. The second highest peak is Gunung Inerie (2245m), another volcano located near the city of Bajawa close to the southern coast. Due to the mountainous terrain the Trans-Flores highway is in several sections a narrow and winding mountain road, with low average driving speeds.
