Tourist guide Charles Roring
Hi, I am Charles Roring. I work as private tour guide. I write this blog to promote eco-tourism, empower the indigenous people, and at the same time preserve the rainforest and coral reef environment of West Papua.
I offer full service trip for single traveler as well as for a group of visitors with 2 to 8 participants or even more.
Everbody is not perfect. I am not a perfect man either but I will do my best to serve you.
Most of my trips are suitable for nature lovers who like nature. The activities will include: trekking, birding, caving, swimming, snorkeling, freediving, mountain biking, and other outdoor activities in such areas as:
  • Fish Lagoon and uninhabited islands in Raja Ampat, 
  • Klasow valley of Sorong regency, 
  • Tambrauw mountains, 
  • Arfak mountains of Manokwari, 
  • Triton bay of Kaimana, 
  • Numfor island, and even to the land of Koroway tribe.
Upon special request, I could guide you as an interpreter to places in Indonesia such as Bali, Maluku, and Sulawesi that are not mentioned above. If you are interested in taking rainforest hiking, camping and birding/ wildlife and/ or snorkeling tours in West Papua, and want me as your private tour guide, please contact me.

Visitors who want to go birding with me need  to bring some equipment such as binoculars, spotting scope, field guide birding book: Birds of New Guinea written by Thane K. Pratt and Bruce Beehler  and anti-insect lotion. For snorkelers and freedivers, good gears such as snorkeling mask, snorkel and fins will enhance your activity while in the jungle or at the beach.






Your Preparation
Trekking in the tropical jungle of West Papua is a fascinating activity. You will be able to see the beautiful scenery of the mountains, slopes that go down to the beach, colorful flowers; butterflies and sometimes the beatiful birds of paradise that perform courtship dance in the mornings and in the afternoons. However, trekking also needs physical endurance. Please, do regular exercises, such as jogging or walking as your preparation before visiting the tropical rainforest of West Papua.
I used to guide tourists on a Trekking tour in the forest of Klaglass in Sorong regency. After hours of walking and exploring the ecosystem of the jungle, she told me that she felt severe pain in her back and leg muscles. Back to the hotel, I had to change my profession from being a hiking guide to working as a massage therapist. Fortunately, I've got the skill.
So, in addition to bringing food, binoculars, camera,  head lamp, sleeping bag for your trekking trip, you need to do regular exercise before visiting West Papua.
Well, I am learning some basics of French language now. If you are a French tourist who plan to visit Papua and need me to provide guiding service, you may give me some private lessons in return.
When I don't guide tourists, I like drawing, watercolor painting, or creating vector graphic art. You could see some of my artworks at Wildlife Art.
