Arfak Kingdom of Birds
Manokwari is a friendly town offering an interesting history and lots of adventures in the nearby Arfak mountains. If you love nature, endemic species and wildlife you must visit the Arfak Mountains to explore Papua's incredible rainforest. Here you will find a great number of endemic bird species (including several species of the birds of paradise) that inhabit Papua's primary forests. Also you get the chance to stroll around the villages and learn more about the local life in these isolated mountains. In Arfak you will stay in a simple lodge located in Mokwam Area. This is about an 1.5 hour drive from the city of Manokwari. The birding sites are located between 40 - 1 hours minutes walk / hike from your base camp. You need to be fit for this tour.
