The Dragon Komodo Islands Expedition

Duration: 3 Days

Overview

Located between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores in the East Nusatenggara province,  sits the vast and impressive Komodo National Park.. The Komodo National Park encompasses a total of 29 volcanic islands (including the 3 major islands Rinca, Padar and Komodo) and is home to approximately 2,500 Komodo Dragons and other terrestrial fauna such as various species of reptiles, birds, and mammals. The park’s terrain is uniquely diverse, consisting of a mountainous hillside, tropical rain forests, grass-woodland savannah, and pristine white sandy beaches that harbor rich marine biodiversity. The marine environment in the Komodo National Park is one of the world’s richest in flora and fauna and is still relatively undiscovered.  The 2,000 km2 park (which includes protected land and water), is recognized as a global conservation priority area and has an array of natural attractions.

The beauty of Rinca Island has become famous to both local and foreign tourists. Now let's learn everything you need to know before coming to Rinca Island. Rinca Island is about 18,500 hectares and most of its part is covered by a very beautiful sabana. When you come to visit this island, you will be presented with several routes, ranging from short to the longest treks for about 1-3 hours long. Each trek will be guided by a guide or the forest police or commonly called a ranger.

The trek will pass and climb the towering hilltops of Rinca Island. When you reach the top of the hill, you can enjoy the mixed magnificence view of the savanna, the wide sky, clusters of coral hills that stand firmly, other hills that look like a fence surrounding the blue ocean, and small islands around Rinca Island. A combination of heaven-like sights that will leave you in awe.

If you are a sunset-lover, it is recommended to explore Rinca Island and hike the hilltops in the afternoon. There you will experience the most alluring sunset view you will ever witness. The tiredness of climbing will be paid off by a calm and peaceful feeling once you are at the top of the island’s hill.
