Sumbawa Island with its volcano, Mt Tambora, offers adventurous trekking, wonderful natural forests, archeological sites, fantastic beaches, arts and crafts and interesting Dutch colonial heritage. Unfortunately Sumbawa is ignored by most tourists who usually proceed straight to Eastern Indonesia. If you chose to tour the entire island of Sumbawa we recommend a visit to the Komodo Islands, one of Indonesia? famous national parks featuring the Komodo Dragon, a large monitor.
