As far as adventure tour and travel is concerned, Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) Province truly must be one of Indonesia's best kept secrets.  The diversity of the landscape, the people and the world class tourist attractions, all located in a safe and unspoiled environment make it a "must visit" destination.

The unabashed friendliness of it's people contrasts with the exotic and energetic traditional ceremonies like the Pasola of Sumba, the whip fighting of Flores and the war dances of Sabu.  See the prehistoric Dragons of Komodo, the three colored crater lakes of Keli Mutu in Flores; dive in the world renowned diving destinations of Alor and Komodo; surf the waves of Rote and Sumba or just relax on any of the hundreds of unspoiled beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Try your hand at game fishing in Kupang, Rote or  Sumba where Black Pacific Sailfish and Blue Marlin abound.  With more than 95% of the population Christian, it is considered one of the safest regions in Indonesia for foreign travelers. The people will embrace you with open arms and are very happy to welcome you into their villages to experience their traditional way of life.

As we say, travel, tour, explore, experience & enjoy the excitement of Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT)  INDONESIA'S BEST KEPT ADVENTURE TOUR & TRAVEL SECRET.
