Conditions in Komodo after the Lombok earthquake

Hi there,

I will be traveling to Komodo next week from Bali. Does anyone have any updates on the conditions in Komodo given there were two major earthquakes that struck Lombok in a week?

I read on the news there were minor tremor felt in Bali and also small damages to the airport.

Is Komodo affected by the earthquake? Is it still safe to travel to Komodo?

Looking forward hearing from you people!

Hi,

It’s too far from the epicentre to be affected.

Cheers

Hi,

It’s not affected, the tremor was felt there, but it’s 330km away from the epicentre of the Lombok earthquake. Bali was one third of that distance and although it was felt here it did very little damage.

It’s safe to travel to Labuan Bajo.

Cheers
