Timor is another beautiful and unexplored Island from the Lesser Sunda Islands Archipelago. The western part of the island belongs to Indonesia and the eastern part makes a separated country known as East Timor. Similarly to Sumbawa, on Western Timor you can discover many traditional, tribal villages, where its inhabitants are still practicing original and intriguing rituals and culture. Its remote location, past political crisis and visa problems washed away Timor from the tourist map of Indonesia for many years. Thanks to that, the island is still untouched and very authentic. Far Horizon can take you there now before things change!
