Nature Tour near Sorong City

Nature tour near Sorong city
Granite Stone River in Sorong city Forest - West Papua
Yesterday, I had a nature tour to a forest near Sorong city. It was a nice experience because I could see hill savanna, rainforest, some species of birds and wild flowers.
I started hiking at 14.30 and finished 17.30. The first parts of the trails consisted of hills that were covered by tall grass with some trees around. As I walked deeper into the jungle, I could see more big trees, and birds activities. As I walked along the ridge of the hills, I could watch Helmetted Fiarbird (Philemon buceroides), Yellow-faced Myna (Mino dumontii), Olive-back Sunbird (Cynniris jugularis), Olive-crowned Flowerpecker (Dicaeum pectorale), Coconut Lorikeet, Black Lory and a couple of black and white birds which I could not recognize. Perhaps, they were Hooded Butcherbird.

Terrestrial Orchid Flowers in Sorong City Forest
I also saw a green jewel beetle, butterflies, and some terrestrial orchid that grow in the slopes of the hills among the tall grass. I was quite surprized to see a river full of large granite stones with beautiful view of green rainforest on its surroundings.
Sorong city has been an important gate for visitors who want to visit Raja Ampat. Most of the attraction of the archipelago is coral reef. For visitors who are interested in rainforest, Sorong can be an affordable alternative destination.
Sorong city can easily be reached by plane and ships. Pelni passenger ships have got regular service that connect this city with other major cities in Indonesia. There are also daily flight services between Sorong and Jakarta (the capital of Indonesia) and Manado city (an important tourist destination in North Sulawesi province). If you fly to Sorong city, I could meet you at the airport or hotel where you stay and organize a tour to this rainforest. Don't forget to bring binoculars, camera with telephoto lens and anti-insect lotion.
