Due to this, the park has been declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO. For visiting the park, a ship excursion or an authorized tour operator is required. The tour guide or a forest ranger guides you through the entire trail. Since the dragons are quite poisonous, certain distance is advised to be kept if you spot one during the trail. Along with the dragon, the park is also a habitat for water buffalo, Timor deer, long tailed monkey etc.
