Over the recent years, the Komodo islands in East Nusa Tenggara have gradually attracted a growing number of visitors. Solitary adventurers flock to this region in search of the kind of experience that can only be found in remote locations. In Komodo’s case, its relative lack of infrastructure is a blessing in disguise. It is blessed with hundreds of pristine, secluded beaches. The waters are so clear you can literally see through to the bottom.
The Komodo National Park is a designated World Heritage Site and voted as one of the Seven Natural Wonders. It is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores. During trekking in Komodo or Rinca islands, park rangers will escort your hike up the hills where you will get to spot wild boars, water buffalos and of course, the Komodo dragon.
The best time for cruising in Komodo is between March and October, during dry season.
