LESSER SUNDA ISLAND ARCHIPELAGO
The chain of islands east of Bali is named Nusa Tenggara in modern Indonesia: the Southeastern Islands. Among geographers the archipelago is known as the Lesser Sunda Islands, as a separation from the Big Sunda Islands; Sumatera, Jawa and Borneo. For what tourist places concerned, there is nothing ‘small’ about Nusa Tenggara. In contrary: a region of this size with a rich cultural and natural diversity can’t be found elsewhere in the world.
From Lombok in the west to Timor in the east the group of islands is blessed with white sand beaches, clear water and beautifull coral reefs. The three crater lakes of Keli Mutu on Flores, which have different colors because of vulcanic minerals, offer an almost surreal view. On the small island of Komodo, you can find the rarest spiecies of reptile.
In cultural way the islands are about as important. In the eastern part of the archipelago, women produce the most beautiful ikats of Indonesia. On Sumba, jockeys endanger themselves in the very old and dangerous Pasola-ritual. The fishermen on Lembata catch sperm whales by jumping on them from their small boats.
Far from mass tourism
The Lesser Sunda Islands are located between 8 and 11 degrees Southern lattitude. They stretch over a distance of 1300 km and form a central chain in the 5600 km long Indonesian archipelago. Nusa Tenggara has no less than 566 islands; 320 of them are so small, they even don’t have a name. On the map, five of the 42 inhabited islands are clear: Lombok, Sumbawa, Sumba, Flores and Timor. Besides these ‘giants’ there are a number of smaller islands, which are worth while visiting as well.
With exeption of Flores, the bigger islands are good to travel on the entire year. The best time for a visit is the dry season: from April until the end of October or November. In the period April until June, the islands are very green; towards September they are dull and brown. READMORE !!

I was born in east Lombok in 1981 and since I just finished from high school, I went to Flores (East Nusa Tenggara province) I worked as a boat man and we often to handle the guest to visit komodo island. From this experience I got a lot of knowledge about Komodo dragon, the nature and culture, flora and fauna that found in komodo national park. Some other times I worked in an accommodation located in Labuan Bajo. Several years later I went back to Lombok islands I feel happier and close to the family.
This makes the situation is changed so I must figure out how to survive, finally I took a driving course. Such a good moment a man (Mr. Nono) from Senggigi invited me to join with him, he gave a lot of opportunities to increase my career and my skill. I have done a lot of driving to all around Lombok island, I also had a chance to do Rinjani trekking, doing the tour to tropical gili islands and many else. Readmore here…
