Camping Site in Arfak Mountains

Basecamp in Arfak range
I went to Mount Mabowi of Arfak mountains last week. I spent three nights there repairing our tents. We use them to serve our visitors who want to explore the bio-diversity of tropical rainforest of Arfak mountains. There are a lot of trees, shrubs, lianas and creeping plants, orchids, and mushrooms that we can see in the jungle. Insects such as butterflies, dragon flies, ants and grasshopper are abundant. There are also lizards, frogs and birds as well as marsupial animals that can be found in the forest.
Most visitors stay between 3 to 4 days hiking and camping in Mount Mabowi. They enjoy watching birds, observing tropical plants and animals of New Guinea.
If you are interested in taking a hiking and camping tour with me in Mount Mabowi of Arfak range, please, contact me by e-mail to: peace4wp@gmail.com or text massage to my whatsapp: +6281332245180

Rainforest Tour in Tambrauw Mountains

There is a very nice destination for rainforest tour in West Papua province of Indonesia. Its name is Tambrauw mountains. It is located between Manokwari and Sorong regency. Tropical rainforest that covers the mountains is the natural habitat of deer, cuscus possum, wallaby, tree kangaroo, and a lot of species of birds such as Lesser Birds of Paradise, King Bird of Paradise, Magnificent Riflebird and Magnificent Bird of Paradise.
Rainforest in Tambrauw Mountains
Because of its remote location, the cost of traveling to the regency is quite expensive. I suggest that visitors go there in a group of at least 2 to 4 people. I could guide a solo traveling visitor too as long as he or she is willing to pay for the cost of the trip. By traveling in small group, visitors can share the cost of transportation, food, local guides, and accommodation. The trip to Tambrauw mountains may include camping near a river, hiking in the jungle and walking in remote roads along a mountain ridge or a cliff. These area will provide open spaces or forest clearings where visitors can watch birds and other wild animals easily.

If you are interested in visiting Tambrauw mountains to explore its the bio-diversity of its rainforest and want me to be your guide, please, contact me by email to: peace4wp@gmail.com or send text massage to my whatsapp: +6281332245180.

Birding in Raja Ampat of West Papua

Palm Cockatoo in Raja Ampat
Here is the picture of Palm Cockatoo (Probosciger aterrimus). I saw the bird while I was traveling in Raja Ampat. I also saw Pacific Swallow, Radjah Shelduck, Pinon Imperial Pigeon, Pink Spotted Fruit Dove, Papuan Blyth's Hornbill, Olive-backed Sunbird, Starling, Island Kingfisher and Wilson Bird of Paradise and Red Bird of Paradise.
Wild Flowers in the Forest
When I was climbing a steep cape in Fish Lagoon, I saw beautiful flowers. They were orchids, one that I recognized was the Giant Tiger Orchid (Grammatophyllum speciosum). Another one is a terrestrial orchid that I still haven't been able to identify. Here is its picture:
