Komba Island is a small isolated volcanic island in the Flores Sea, 45 km north of the Lesser Sunda Island chain that includes the nearby larger islands of Flores and Timor. Komba is of irregular shape, of diameter roughly 2.5 km. The highest point on the island is Mount Batu Tara (633m), a stratovolcano that has ongoing regular eruptions since 2007. It has steep sides covered by vegetation. Its first historical eruption was noted in 1852, with explosions and lava flows. On approaching the island one sees the continuous ash plume slowly arising from the single crater.

The shore line is rugged and a difficult landing is made by small boat. Visitors don’t trek up the mountain, as an irregular rain of ejected rocks makes this problematic! The distant sounds of eruptions are as frequent as 20 minutes apart, and grey clouds arise from the crater. Between these Strombolian eruptions one can hear the sounds of birds amongst the dense foliage. Local visitors arrive by motor boat while still dark, so as to see the fiery glow from the crater – like a fireworks display. Some pyroclastic flows of lava descend to the sea.

Depending on the wind, scenic onlookers may be covered with fine, black volcanic ash. The only inhabitants are Bajo fishermen, who temporarily overstay and dry the tuna fish catch on racks in the sun. Photographers may have a good day when there are no low-lying clouds to obscure the volcano’s vent. In any case, they can photograph the lave flows/scree descending to the water’s edge.
