Lesser Sunda Islands

Pulau Komba


Komba Island (Indonesian: Pulau Komba) is a small, isolated uninhabited island located in the Banda Sea north-east of Flores, Indonesia. Due to its isolated situation and difficult access, it is rarely visited.

When I approached the island it was immediately apparent that Batu Tara volcano was still active. Greyish ash plumes regularly spurted forth from the middle of the island in contrast to the lush green vegetation clinging to the steep slopes of Komba’s near-perfect cone.
