Komodo-Flores, Where The Legend Begins. Flores is now getting more attention with The Komodo National Park, home to the unique Komodo dragon, a monitor lizard of impressive size and appearance, which attracts thousands of people annually from around the world; and secondly, Kelimutu National Park, an inactive volcano in the centre of Flores that intrigues visitors with its three brightly-coloured crater lakes, which are steeped in local mythology.
However, Flores is so much more than Komodo and Kelimutu. Nature lovers will find it everywhere: deserted islands with white sandy beaches to escape from the hassles of everyday life; beautiful rice fields nestled among soft hilly landscapes, perfect for a laid-back stroll; a concert of birdsong in lush coffee plantations to soothe the mind; and a swim in a hot spring, clear lake, or cool river after a volcano trek. There are so many places of amazing natural beauty still waiting to be explored.
