Komodo National Park

Nusa Tenggara Timur, Indonesia

One of the most sought-after tourist places in Indonesia, the island is located between Sumbawa and Flores, along western Nusa Tenggara Timur, and is popular for the presence of giant Monitor Lizards known as Komodo Dragons. The island is arid, rugged and barren and forms a part of the Komodo National Park and Marine Reserve. Aerial views prove that it is inarguably, among the most beautiful places in Indonesia.

Besides spotting endangered Komodo dragons, a range of activities can be enjoyed at the Komodo National Park. Go for kayaking, diving, trekking or the guided island tours.

Best Time To Visit: April and December

How To Reach: Traveling around Komodo Island can be relatively easy, but to get to Komodo, you first need to travel to Bali and then to Labuan Bajo by either plane or boat, and finally to Komodo Island by boat. A couple of local airlines fly from Bali to Labuan Bajo on Flores Island.
