Three Highlights of Indonesian Voyages
Each day of an expedition offers a multitude of memorable moments, from sunrises over deserted islands to dolphins leaping at sunset. In the water, locations such as Raja Ampat and Komodo offer some of the best diving in the world. At land, treks to island interiors offer sights that can be seen nowhere else, such as the mysterious lakes of Kelimutu.
The name of this stunningly beautiful region of Papua means ‘four kings’: Raja Ampat is an archipelago with four main islands and approximately 1500 smaller ones, with striking, unforgettable scenery that combines beaches, lagoons, rich marine diversity and glimpses of rare coral. 1200 fish species are found here and a world record was set of 284 species sightings on a single dive in Kofiau Island.
Mount Kelimutu National Park
Certainly, another visually stunning experience is the trek to the Kelimutu crater lakes in Nusa Tenggara Timur. These three crater lakes were created by the Kelimutu volcano. Each lake has a different colour and they can also periodically change colour, independently of each other. Volcanic activity beneath the lakes creates an appearance of surface colours that range from reddish-brown to turquoise. Interestingly, this is one of Indonesia’s most dramatic tempat angker, or ‘haunted places’ – locals believe that it is home to the ancestral spirits of the island.
Komodo National Park & Marine Reserve
The Komodo National Park is home to one of the most iconic and fascinating creatures found on land in Indonesia. The endemic Komodo Dragon (Varanus komodoensis). A sighting of one of these larger relatives of monitor lizards within the dramatic rugged landscapes of these islands adds to the mythical feel of an Indonesian journey.
Also found in the Komodo National Park and Marine Reserve are the orange-footed scrub fowl and the Timor deer. Plus, one of the richest marine environments in the world, with coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, seamounts, and semi-enclosed bays. In detail, these are home to more than 1,000 species of fish, 260 species of reef-building coral, 70 species of sponges. Dugongs, sharks, manta rays, over 14 species of whales, dolphins, and, last but not least, sea turtles.
