Arfak Mountains of Manokwari
Arfak Mountains of Manokwari have been famous around the world as the perfect site for eco-tourism activities. Arfak mountain range stretches from the east to the west of the bird's head region of West Papua. Perhaps many of you have not seen how these mountains look like. Well, to help you get an idea of how these mountains look like, I have taken some pictures of the mountains and presented them for you here in this Manokwari Papua blog.
Various species of birds, mammals and reptiles can be found in Arfak mountains. If you want to go hiking in Arfak, there are a number of items that you need to bring, hiking shoes, sleeping bag, mosquito repellent lotion, matches to burn firewood, warm clothing, flashlight, food, first aid kit, and other equipment that are usually used during an adventure travel. Don't forget to bring your digital photo or video camera (including spare batteries). For bird watching and kuskus watching, and butterflying, bring telescope and binoculars. by Charles Roring
