The view from the top is worth the effort of the climb. Make sure you carry water bottle along. We unfortunately took the slow boat which was pathetic, it takes the slow boat 3-4 hours from LB to padar which would take the speed boat...More

Visited this island with our agency. It was so amazing when we reached the top. If you like nature view, you have to visit this island on your tour to komodo.

The photos say it best... Padar Island is breathtaking. There are stairs to climb 90% of the way. If you decide to continue the rest is a dirt trail. It is about 250 meters or 800 feet of climb.

It is really hard to find the bad photos is this Island. Every angle is so beatiful to capture. Now it is even easier to reach the top as they build a wooden stair.

The view is great, a very well maintained place, the government even build stairs for visitors to climb. Good view, better to bring enough water, early climb before the sunrise is highly recommended for the best view, sunset will also works. Be careful during your...More

This is truly a "must" when you are at Labuan Bajo. The hike to the top took no more than 30 minutes. Great view on the top.

Beautiful place!! Went with a tour and therefore it was a little more crowded than I’d liked, but the view was totally worth it. It is so beautiful and peaceful up there. The beaches looked so pretty but since we were on a tour we...More

Lovely island, the view is amazing from the top of the island. But you need to hike around 15 minutes to reach the top to get the best view
