$1600 to land on Komodo island

so you think great walks are expensive? Will a $1600 entrance fee to a national park save the Komodo dragon? https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/116285553/will-a-1600-entrance-fee-to-a-national-park-save-the-komodo-dragon
It would reduce overcrowding on the Tongariro Crossing except at peak times
It wouldn't worry me as the Tongariro Crossing, thanks to over-tourism, will never see me again. I like to do my tramping in places where I'm less likely to bump into somebody talking to a camera at the end of a pole...
Gazcan...I did the Tongariro Crossing a few years ago under a full moon, only saw one person the entire time. There are still plenty of ways to not see people on popular routes, but yes, the selfie-stick needs to be banned!
