Pristine white sand beaches strewn with colourful starfish, waters resplendent with corals, shoals of fish and the most bizarre, albeit utterly fascinating creatures—Komodo Islands are made of these. No superfluous description can prepare you for the absolute delight these islands are!
But more importantly, these islands are open for tourism only for the next few months, until December 2019. The Indonesian government has decided to close the island because of heavy poaching of the dragons.
Very recently, smugglers were caught with 41 dragons which were to be sold in the international market for a price as high as 500 million rupiah (25 lakh INR) each. Threatened by the dwindling number of the endangered animal, the government will open the island for tourism only after a conservation plan is successfully executed.
So, if you wish to see the dragons, plan a trip at the earliest!
