On the way to a little island

Imagine this for a moment. You are in a boat tossed around by the turquoise waters of the oceans, headed to an emerald tinged island. It is a beautiful day, the breeze is in your face and the cotton candy clouds are floating through the sky. A jetty greets you the moment land ashore . Walking around in gay abandon, you can hear the rustle of the leaves . You stop for a moment to take in the beauty of the landscape . And then you see it, the largest living lizard, a dragon that spits venom, dominating the entire island that it virtually owns – the komodo dragon. And you are in the heart of Komodo Island in Indonesia.

Meet the komodo dragon up and close

This may not just be a moment of imagination. You can literally be there, if you are one of the ten winners of the contest organised by the Ministry of Tourism in Indonesia.

I was in Indonesia for a fortnight, on the invitation of the Tourism Board and I can never forget my first sighting of this giant lizard that can grow up to three metres and weigh over 70 kgs. With its tongue darting, sniffing out for blood, the dragons can kill deer or monkeys as well .

However there is more to komodo island than just dragons. Lose yourself in the many shades of Pink Beach, snorkel with the fish or laze on the beach, trek up the Rinca Island and soak in the landscape or sweat it out at Pindar just to watch a gorgeous sunset.
