Indonesia | After some hesitation, government will temporarily close part of Komodo NP in 2020

Plans to close one of Indonesia's hottest tourist destinations, Komodo National Park, which encompasses a cluster of islands in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), continue to move forward, as the government is set to announce a decision on a year-long shutdown slated to begin on January 2020.


NTT Tourism Agency head Marius Ardu Jelamu explained that the closure, aimed at habitat restoration, would only apply to Komodo Island, which is the largest island in the park and which is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
