You could also lengthen the duration of your trip in West Papua by adding a rainforest tour in the mainland of New Guinea. I usually guide visitors to see tropical rainforest in Klasow valley in Sorong regency or Sausapor town in Tambrauw mountains. Tropical rainforest of West Papua is the natural habitat of such birds as Blyth's hornbill, pinon imperial pigeon, sulphur crested cockatoo, large fig parrot and a lot more.
The rainforest is also the natural habitat of colorful butterflies including Blue Mountain Swallowtail, Meadow Argus, Cruiser butterfly and Taenaris Catops butterfly. Birding and wildlife watching is a famous activity which tourists like to do when taking rainforest tour.
How to get there
- Fly from your country to Jakarta (the capital of Indonesia)
- After that, fly from Jakarta to Sorong city. I will meet you at the airport and arrange your trip both to Raja Ampat and the rainforest of mainland West Papua.
