The landscape is low, limestone hills, rather than the steep volcanoes of many Indonesian islands.
Due to its distinctive flora and fauna Sumba has been categorised by the World Wildlife Fund as the Sumba deciduous forests ecoregion. There are a number of mammals but the island is particularly rich in birdlife with nearly 200 birds of which seven endemic species and a number of others are found only here. Sumba has a highly stratified society based on castes, this is especially true of East Sumba whereas West Sumba is more ethnically and linguistically diverse.

The term Kalimantan refers to the Indonesian portion of the island of Borneo, the 3rd largest island in the world.The non-Indonesian parts of Borneo are of Brunei and East Malaysia. More than 15 million people live in Kalimantan. The word Kalimantan was derived from Sanskrit Kalamanthana which means ‘ burning weather island’ or island with a very hot temperature to describe its hot and humid tropical climate. Skewered by the equator and roasting under a tropical sun the steamy forests of Kalimantan serve up endless opportunities for epic rainforest exploration. The Borneo rainforest is 130 million years old making it one of the oldest rainforests in the world and 70 million years older than the Amazon rainforest. The noble orangutan shares the canopy with acrobatic gibbons while prehistoric hornbills patrol air above. The local people collectively known as Dayak, have long lived with this rich challenging landscape, they also are well-known for their hospitality.

The west coast of Flores is one of the few places where the Komodo dragon can be found in the wild, part of the Komodo National Park a UNESCO world heritage site The Kelimutu National Park is the second national park designated on Flores to protect endangered species. There are many languages spoken on the island of Flores all of them belonging to the Austronesian family.There is what is variously called the Central Flores Dialect chain or the Central Flores Linkage. The people of Flores are almost entirely Roman Catholic Christians whereas most other Indonesians are Muslim. There are snorkling and diving locations along the north coast of Flores. Labuan Bajo (western tip of Flores) attracts scuba divers as whale sharks inhabit the waters around Labuanbajo. 
Special hot-spot is Kelimutu a volcano containing three colored lakes in the district of Ende close to the town of Moni.These crater lakes are fed by a volcanic gas source resulting in highly acidic water.The colored lakes change colors oin an irregular basis depending oin the oxidation state of the lake from brighrt red through green and blue
