Panoramic Tour to Gunung Botak of Manokwari

Gunung Botak is a beautiful place in Manokwari. It is very far from the city. To reach that place, we need to go by car or motorcycle. It takes around 4 hours to reach Gunung Botak. The mountain range of Botak is mostly covered by grass. It looks like green carpet from a distant. The green landscape of the mountains meets the blue sea color of Cendrawasih bay at long the white sandy beach. Here, tourists can enjoy swimming, and sunbathing. 

Don't forget to bring snorkeling gears if you want to see hundreds of species of tropical fish that thrive in coral reef. A trip to Gunung Botak can be combined with rainforest tour in Warmarway area where visitors may watch birds of paradise, cuscus possum, soa-soa lizard, or birdwing butterfly. For plants, visitors can see various species of mushrooms, orchids, bamboo, and a lot of tropical trees and vines. The duration of the tour is usually between 4 days/ 3 nights to 6 days/5 nights depending on your interest and budget.
