Komodo National Park has wonder waiting to be explored & climbed!
The rounded hills make up a stunning landscape that you will never see anywhere else. The best way to appreciate the view from the top is to set out on foot! Here is the list of our best mountain treks that offer the most breathtaking views:
Padar Island, the third largest island in the Komodo National Park
Hiking up and down Padar Island takes between 1 to 2 hours, (depending on how many photos you’ve snapped on the way) to finally reach the summit with an out-of-the-world panoramic view. Prepare yourself to be blown away by the 3 coloured beaches (pink, white, black).
Gili Lawa Darat, one of the most breathtaking viewpoints in Komodo National Park.
Jump out of the boat and hike up the hill of Gili Lawa Darat to catch the best sunrise of your life! A 30 minutes trek from beach to the top is needed for a marvelous view. One of the must-visit islands in the park. The perfect place for sunrise… or sunset!
Rinca Island, searching for Komodo Dragons
Put your trekking boots on, the longest trek of Rinca Island is about 6 kilometers and takes 2 to 3 hours. You will walk through the dry savanna and along the mangroves, climb hills from where you can enjoy the scenery and wild life in distance. One of a very few places to spot Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. You cannot explore the island without a local ranger.
Komodo Island, welcome to Jurassic Park
From 30 minutes to 3 hours, Komodo Island has 3 different main treks, accessible to everyone. You will see Dragons after about 10 minutes walking, no needs to go deeper into the jungle! But if you are a well-prepared trekker, there are longer treks which may take 8 hours and lead to breathtaking views over the bay and the rest of the National Park. A local ranger will guide you over the island.
