The Nusa Tenggara Island is rich in history and culture. One island, however, is particularly famous for being the home at the world’s largest reptile, the Komodo dragon. These huge monitor lizard are nephews and nieces of the dinosaur, so it will come as no surprise to discover they are capable of swallowing a small water buffalo in one sitting.
Fortunately their tastes do not extend to tourists ( if you are careful!). Further east of komodo island is the island of flores. Here the true essences of the ancient eastern trades mingle. Sandal wood, ebony, palm and taro scent the air while the trio of volcanic lake on Mount Kelimutu ( which appear chameleon –like in different colors from burgundy red to turquoise green ) are a sight which does wonders for the soul.
