Interesting Facts About Komodo Dragons:

  • Mystical Dragons: Known as ‘Oras’ locally, Komodo dragons are unique to a select few Indonesian islands.

Culture of Komodo

The Komodo region is rich in culture, showcased through the traditional Caci dance and Ikat weaving. The Caci dance is a ritualistic whip fight symbolizing the struggle between good and evil, deeply rooted in local folklore. Ikat weaving is a traditional form of textile making in the region, famous for its complex designs. These designs are more than just art; they tell stories about the local people and their history.

A Culinary Journey

Discover the flavors of Komodo with dishes like spicy Rica-Rica, a dish that combines local spices and fresh ingredients for a fiery taste. Another highlight is the traditional fish soup, a perfect blend of local seafood and rich, aromatic broth. These dishes are not only delicious and unique in taste but also offer a glimpse into the region’s culinary diversity.

Visiting Komodo Island begins with a flight to Labuan Bajo’s Komodo Airport, conveniently connected to major Indonesian cities. Upon arrival, a brief yet scenic boat journey takes you to the island, offering glimpses of the stunning landscapes and waters that define this region.
