SNAKE ISLAND, INDONESIA
snake island! hello guys my name is rob and my name is cheyne. we're "thelostboys". today we are here in sumbawa on the northwest tip, at the harbor. around this area there's some really cool islands that not a lot of people visit. today we're going to be island hopping and potentially even seeing some snakes of course the lost boys are here with antonio. we're walking down the pier now. getting ready to get on the boat. this pier looks
like it's missing a couple platforms. some bamboo there who's driving the boat? who's driving the boat?! not me, not cheyne, not rob. so if you saw our last video we were all the way at satonda island. it's off the northeast coast of sumbawa. on our way back to bali we figured we'd have one last adventure. now here island hopping. a lot of exterior islands off the northwest coast here. if you look out all the way in the distance you can
actually see lombok and mount rinjani. the second tallest active volcano in indonesia. up there in the clouds. guys i'm pasty (white) these days spending a lot of time editing so it's time to get some rays time to get some sun let's get the tan on. antonio get your tan on. let's go all right guys we're pulling up to our first island here. the water is crystal clear. before we go swimming, this is goat island. we're gonna hike up to the top
there and get some stunning views of this surrounding area. we're coming up to the entrance to the island now. it's so peaceful and quiet here. all the small little green areas around here. it's got this lagoon and
tropical vibe. i've never been in an area like this in indonesia. gonna hop in here and get on the island. antonio walk us on. man this is amazing. we're gonna go there and from there we're gonna have an amazing view. we are on.
hanging out here. just had a close call with the drone. low battery but it's okay. we are making our way up the hill and man we just had an event . unfortunately i was walking up this hill and i fell and the camera fell. unfortunately the memory card got shaken and didn't read it. but this hill is pretty slippery. we're barefoot all the way to the top. we're starting to get some stunning views. it's only slippery for people from new york. people from campanillas don't have a problem here. this is the only shade
on this whole island. this place is completely open. we're hiding under here because the rest of this is completely open and exposed. it's gonna be a hot day. and we made it to the top we made it to the top amazing views. i wish the clouds were clear because rinjani would be perfect right now. it's okay you can't have everything you want in the world. spar guys. let's do it. yeah this is the worst thing to be lost in the island with two american crazy guys. anything can happen. wait guys. we'd like to introduce and thank today's video sponsor

jungle to the other side of the island. hopefully get some good views. coming through the bush. hopefully there's no snakes down here about to bite my foot bro guys there is a echo here. and if you watched our video from ijen crater, we know how to send some echoes. essspectacular that was the best one, hands down. guys check it out, there's sumbawa right there behind me, lombok over here on the other side, surrounded by these beautiful islands. this amazing coral. the water is so clear.
it's a beautiful day. we could have not asked for better weather. this is absolutely gorgeous. it's time to go back down the hill, get on the boat, and do some snorkeling. we are sweating guys we are so hot it's time to get in the water let's go we are back on the move. one interesting fact about this place is that the people here at pototano are originally from labuhan bajo. which is on the west coast of flores. right outside the komodo islands. they actually speak the same language. just the people in this little town. so pretty interesting fact. also this place
has similar vibes to labuhan bajo and the komodo islands. i almost just fell there. it's not quite as magnificent as the komodo islands. but you can see there's a ton of small islands all around here and beautiful blue water. but the big perk of this place is that you can come here and get your
own private boat for 500 000 rupiah that's around 35 us dollars. there's nobody here, it's nothing like komodo. we're island hopping all around this amazing place by ourselves. there's nothing like a day out on the boat with perfect weather. it's beautiful out here, check it out. and we are now up to our next island, pulau kanawa. if you follow indonesian content, and are
familiar with a lot of photos of the islands of indonesia on instagram, you've probably seen photos of this place. because it's pretty photogenic. it's a completely flat island and then all the way on the one tip is a little tiny pointy hill. it's very unique looking. we're gonna hop on here and walk around. i think there's some places to get some food. i'm in the island i really want to see this place for a long time. oh no we're stranded. all right staying the night here. yeah stay the night here, set up a tent. there's plenty of food on the other island, snake island. we're gonna check that out.
you hear the tunes? hear the dangdut? that means we're coming to a warung let's go it means the food is about to be good this is paradise. the karaoke, the music, we're feeling it. beautiful white sand, boats right here, sumbawa in the background. come on it doesn't get much better than this. what a day! what a day! that's his go to song. 15 000 rupiah. that's a dollar. go to bali on the beach they're 25 000.
he's cutting them up for us. cheers bro. rob is gonna be ok with this. rob you have food
we are finished eating and now we're going to make our way to the other side of the island. to the lone wolf, the only hill. walk up to the top let's go and there is absolutely no shade on this section of the island guys this is a wide open grass and the hill in the background there wide open we did it we climbed rinjani in 20 minutes. people take three days. we don't understand. with sandals 20 minutes. more than 17 000 islands in indonesia but this one is definitely unique. just look at this view, look at this whole landscape behind me. this whole island just flatland and peaks up right here to this one hill on the top. you see there
sumbawa behind mem all these surrounding islands. so many. right back there behind me is pulau ular. we're going there next to see some snakes let's go we are now pulling up to snake island. maybe cheyne is gonna get his hands on some snakes. i don't know, i'm not gonna guarantee anything. but the intention is to get some snakes. so apparently this tiny little island here has got a ton of snakes on it. i don't know why but we're gonna go see it check it out. look how small this is.
even our boat captain didn't want to go. he's legit scared to go. people in the port were telling us "you're going to pulau ular" i don't know but we're here. i hate snakes guys. i'm gonna stay in the boat. i'm gonna take
photos with it sun. i don't have to go there. show me the snakes. okay we're following pak now. i'm getting nervous. i'm getting so nervous. i don't want to see snakes. you all can see that? all right that one looks thick and big and he's sleeping. i don't know if i want to disturb him out of his sleep. we found another rock. looks like there's a lot of smaller ones there. i'm going to take you in. you see those snakes?
whoa everyone's sleeping and hanging out for the day. guys i was under the impression there's going to be some on the surface i could just grab. he wants me to stick my hand inside the snake pit. so all the snakes are sleeping right now and then at night they get wake up and then hunt and swim. cheyne's gotta go underneath the rock and grab one. warning. we do not encourage our viewers to recreate or re-enact any of the following activities. no animals were harmed in the making of this video.
this is the yellow lipped sea krait. it is known for its lethal venom which is over 10 times deadlier than a rattlesnake's. identified by its distinctive black stripes and paddle-like tail, this snake splits its life between the land and sea. as deadly as it is, the yellow lip sea krait is still very calm and rarely bites humans. still we must insist that nobody tries this at home. holy [ __ ]. come here give me the camera
look at that here we are at snake island oh my god he's laughing at us this is wild they're hiding. three two one he's so strong. i don't want to hurt him. he's too strong. he's locked in
