Some tourist travel tips for Indonesia

Indonesia is a huge country that offers great cultural diversity. With its 18,110 islands, of which about 6,000 are uninhabited, it is the largest archipelago in the world. The country’s population consists of 240 million people, who are divided into over 300 ethnic groups and speak over 250 languages. The island of Bali is undoubtedly the most famous and preferred tourist destination, but it is far from the only place in Indonesia worth visiting. Here are some of the most interesting places in Indonesia that you should not miss.

Lake Toba
Lake Toba on the island of Sumatra is a beautiful volcanic lake that is about 100 kilometers long and about 30 kilometers wide. It was formed as a result of a giant volcanic eruption about 70,000 years ago. It is estimated that only a few thousand people survived this cataclysm. The island, which is located in the middle of the lake, is called the island of Samosir and is the largest island in the world, located inside another island.

Tanjung Putting
Tanjung Puting Nature Park is located on the island of Borneo in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan. The park is a popular destination for eco-tourism and many local tour operators offer a variety of excursions that allow visitors to see wildlife in its natural habitat and visit the research centers in the park. Among the wildlife you can see there are: gibbons, macaques, leopards, Malayan bears, pythons, crocodiles and orangutans. Unfortunately, the park is seriously threatened by illegal logging and deforestation for agricultural purposes.

Baliem Valley
The Baliem Valley is located in the mountains of western New Guinea and offers a view of a world far from civilization. This valley was not known to the world until 1938, when an aerial reconnaissance flight found a population in the area engaged in agriculture. Every year, the Danny Tribe invites a few lucky people from the outside world who get the opportunity to spend some time in the tribe and get acquainted with their traditions and customs.

Bromo Peak
Bromo Peak is an active volcano and is part of the Tenger Mountains in the eastern part of the island of Java. With its 2,329 meters in height, Bromo is not the highest peak in the massif, but it is definitely the most famous. This area is one of the most visited and preferred tourist destinations in Indonesia. The top of the volcano was exploded a long time ago and its crater periodically throws white smoke into the air.
