After a week in Raja Ampat, we went to Manokwari to see some more of the West Papua province. Our plan was to stay up in the Arfak mountains in a village for a few nights, but we decided to spend them in a hotel in the city instead. It is possible that we were on the brink of an overdose of new impressions and needed some rest. We went to the Arfak mountains on a day trip instead, and it was a very interesting experience.
Here are some photos from our short trip to Manokwari and the Arfak mountains:
Even though this was a short trip, it gave me a glimpse of a different world. It helped to move my imagination a bit further. I hope I can come back someday and stay longer, maybe to stay in one of the villages, and going hunting with the guys. My bucket list keeps getting weirder and weirder…
