Sumba is a dynamic mystery. One of the Nusa Tenggara Timur one hour flight with ATR 272-600, and it is the southern part of NTT very close to Darwin Australia, a direct flight from Darwin would take maybe one and half hour.
This island is 3 x the width of Bali, but it has only 800,000 inhabitants. Previously it was divided into 2 regions, Sumba Barat with capital city Waikabubak and Sumba Timur with capital city Waingapu.
Owing to the large size, 5 years ago the Sumba Barat was divided into 3 region; Sumba Tengah, Sumba Barat and Sumba Barat Daya, that was chaired by the successful Dr Kornelius Kodi Mete as the Bupati.
