|King Bird of Paradise in Susnguakti forest|
We also saw cruiser butterfly, birdwing butterfly Ornithoptera priamus and Swallow-tailed Blue Mountain Butterfly Papilio ulysses.
In the last day before we left our jungle base-camp, our local guide brought a bandicoot that had been caught by a trap. I covered her body, head and front legs and asked a local guide to release the lasso node that was tying her left rear leg. Slowly, she left us and ran into the bush again.

How to get to Manokwari city?
- If you are interested in visiting Susnguakti forest for wildlife watching need to take an international flight from their country to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.
- After that, they could take a domestic flight provided by Garuda, Sriwijaya, and Batik Air to Manokwari city. I could meet you at the airport and organize your tour to Susnguakti forest.
