Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our school holidays remain at home. However, that does not mean we can not enjoy the beauty of nature. Through virtual tours, we can see beautiful nature in various places.
1. Sumba Island, East Nusa Tenggara
The beauty of Sumba Island is unquestionable. Virtual tours to Sumba Island that we can enjoy are the Warinding hills in Waingapu City, the Wai Marang waterfall, the Weekuri lagoon with clear blue waters, the Laiwangi Wanggameti National Park, and the Ratenggaro Traditional Village which was visited by soccer player David Beckham.
Although virtually, it feels like a real trip. In fact, there is a tour guide who accompanies us during the virtual tour. The ticket price is quite affordable. We can get tickets and tour schedules from tourism operators who open virtual tour services. One of them is Atourin.com.
2. Climbing the Mountain
The mountaineering community creates virtual mountain climbing tours to treat the homesickness of people who want to climb mountains. There are 4 mountains in Indonesia that will become virtual climbing destinations, namely Mount Rinjani, Mount Prau, Mount Semeru, and Mount Papndayan. This virtual tour will take place every Saturday from 7 pm to 9 pm and will be guided by professional climbers. Wow, so like a real mountain climber, yes!
We not only see the natural beauty of the mountains but also get the right mountain climbing tips and tricks. Now, the climbing schedule can be seen on Instagram @mainoutdoor, OK!
3. Yosemite National Park, United States
We can also travel abroad without needing to buy plane tickets. For example, take a virtual trip to Yosemite National Park in the United States. This park is home to more than 400 types of animals. This National Park was inaugurated in 1948 with an area of 300,000 hectares. Yosemite National Park is also famous for its granite gorges, waterfalls, sequoia trees, and mountains. We can enjoy the natural beauty of Yosemite Park virtually. By accessing the virtualyosemite.org page, we can walk around this park through our gadgets. Traveling to this park is free.
