Fodor's Expert Review Dragon-watching Tours


The dragons’ main lair is a section of shallow caves scraped out of a low, dusty ravine about 2 km (1 mile) from Loh Liang. Groups meet at the park office, then follow a fairly easy trail through open forest to Banu Nggulung overlooking the burrows. For years, park rangers fed live goats to Komodos here, but that practice has been abandoned. Dragon walks generally last one to two hours, depending on visitor interest and sighting success. If all else fails, Komodo dragons frequent Loh Liang, attracted by the food and trash there. Trails have minimal shade, so bring a hat, wear sunscreen, and carry water on any walk.
