Earth Snow Papua Terayu
world tourism - papua Indonesia.

Country full of adventure. That phrase Papua blind. Not only offers a natural charm and challenge, a huge island in the east end of this archipelago also has a snowy area, like in Europe. Travel to Papua done by the author, Beautiful Permaihati and colleagues, this is a journey and the work previously unimaginable. Imagine, among team members, five people have never even mountain climbing. And, once had to climb, to the mountain known as fierce in this country. Logistics is a separate problem in travel. To travel for 2 weeks, the weight of our supplies from Jakarta, plus purchased from Timika and Tembagapura, has reached 1.2 tons. Fortunately, there are those who assist and prepare the helicopter that will take some of these logistics to the base camp .-

Although most participants of this trip is not a professional climber, we can feel relieved. Because the team accompanied the climbers who have had experience, especially climbing the snow mountains in Papua. One of them is Mulyono Ripto has climbed more than 20 times .- The climb begins from the region called the Zebra Wall. So called because here there is a giant wall of zebra pattern. This location is often used by hikers to stay overnight before continuing the ascent .-

The following day, the journey continued to a place called the Valley Lakes. Personal equipment and the estimated logistic enough to travel to the Lakes was our hips. This trip brings climbers to the area every so-called "Door Wind", a long hallway into the gap that often wind berhembusnya .-

However, the hardest part of this day trip was a climb called "Oh Mama". His name is fitting to explain this rise. In addition to very steep and narrow, crossing slopes very draining. Anyway, anyone who pass by will and moaning, calling his mama .- Lakes Valley is Gorgeous-Aside from the exhausting climb after about 2 hours of walking, a beautiful valley spread out wide in front of the eye. Flanked by two mountains, the Peak Sumantri and Puncak Jaya, the towering. The valley is located at an altitude of 4200 meters from sea-level is decorated with two small lakes with different colors namely, green and blue. This is where climbers usually take a rest while enjoying the charming atmosphere before reaching the base camp location has been determined .-
Lakes Valley is strategic. From here, climbers can easily to the tops of mountains in Papua, which will climb. Not only that, the beautiful natural scenery and unique will make anyone reluctant to leave this place. Besides being used as a base camp, this is where the climbers undergo acclimatization or climate adjustments last for a few days .-

On the appointed day, the climb to the Puncak Jaya began. Climbing leader set a time for two days to take up this climb. By late afternoon, we arrived at the destination, an inlet of the mountain. This is what later became temporary shelter prior to Puncak Jaya. The snow is falling so hard to make the temperature go drop, reaching about 2 to minus 5 degrees .-

The next morning, we went to Puncak Jaya. After struggling through the snow field and the very cold air, it was a dream peak was reached late morning. Feelings of joy and sadness enveloped the atmosphere instantly in the form of plateau icefield is. However, this excitement must be passed as climbing leader decided to go down again .-

The journey down was not as easy as you think. Gloves and socks are wet, three times sank into "hell" itself. To avoid a rock slide, we chose the way bergrak declined. Although exhausting, the trip for 9 hours this becomes a separate record that is, we are able to "defeat" .-

Land yourself in the highest-addition Nusantara Puncak Jaya. Papua also has Carstensz Pyramid Peak. 4884-meter-high peak is much coveted local and foreign climbers as reliable as the highest land in Indonesia and even the continent of Asia, Australia .-

Reaching the top of Carstensz course it is not easy. Terrain is far more extreme than the field in the Puncak Jaya and the necessary climbing skills and techniques to climb high. Not to mention snow storms, fog and strong winds are always lurked the climbers. Therefore, not all of us participate as climbing to the top of this .-
There was, climbing in the mountains of Papua, this must end. Puncak Jaya and the legendary Cartenz it has successfully achieved. For me, this may be a very tough climb, but not the last .-

Bird Park and Orchid Biak. world tourism papua Indonesia.

Bird Park and Orchid Biak.
world tourism papua Indonesia.

Located between the City Bosnik and Biak, precisely at Rim Village, East Biak District, there is a Tifa-shaped gate and a magnificent shingle shiny white. On board were the words "Bird Park & Orchid Biak" (TBAB). On the left-right lies the entrance to the parking space concrete along approximately 50 m. Was the right gate, there is a security post occupied by a uniformed officer.

- The first oddity appears. Visitors enter without paying admission. This is possible because the Government has not set the price of admission into the park that was built by the Provincial Government of Papua since 1990. Then from where the funds management area of 5 hectares that? -

With no official rates, it happens gratuity by visitors to the guard. About its value, varies. Some Rp2.500-giving between 10,000 and some are just giving a smile. Meanwhile, entrance to the Japanese Cave of Rp2.000 and 5 Door Rp5.000 cave. TBAB income derived from providing "voluntary" is used for daily needs manager / honorarium. Enough? Ah, of course not ... ..-

After digging deeper, turns out the budget to enter into the TBAB Program Natural Resources and Environment, which includes the development of provincial forestry business in the district of Jayapura, Biak-Numfor, Sorong, Fak-Fak and Manokwari. Estimated cost of the overall budget for the program, including the TBAB was USD 1,551,343,000, -.

After 12 years of existence, what happens if the project was terminated TBAB? How the fate of 32 employees honorary, 233 fish of 45 species of birds, and 1473 families of the 60 species of orchids from various regions of Papua? How TBAB can also develop as a means of education, ex-situ conservation and tourism? -

The hot sun and the chatter of parrots us realize the wonder, to re-observe the only garden birds in Papua .- Basically, TBAB divided into three complexes . On the left-wing cages lining two long-separated by a wide concrete aisle about three feet. On the right wing there are some single cage. While in the middle of the orchid garden and a large pond. In some corner of the park, available from the concrete seats for visitors to rest. There are also several wooden chairs and means the game though, um .., less long-neglected .-

Kennels on the left wing, given a screen to separate one type of bird with other species. Some types of parrots, cockatoos, kumkum, pigeons, parrots Irian, until Hornbill / taon-taon. One cage can contain a tail, more than one tail, and even a few of the different types .-

The scientific name and the name "Indonesia" was a bird attached to each cage to facilitate visitors to know his name. The second oddity comes in the minds of our heads. What if the birds want to drink it? You see, most of the water pools dry. Whereas direct sunlight shining on the cages are far from calm. What if they want to release the biological desires? Because no artificial nests that allows them to pure .-

On the right wing of TBAB, seen a number of single or duplex cages containing one or more tail parrot, parrots, and parrots Irian. The far right alongside two large cages the size of the rectangle, about 20x10x10m. In it live "free" along the yellow bird of paradise, paradise 12 antenna, Kumkum land, parrot Irian, Crowned, and Urip. In the two cages is the best attractions on view, because birds can fly more freely, shady cage, is a large water pool, and there are big trees playground. But the fulfillment of a biological desire was not facilitated .-

In the center, there are several roofed houses for the nets orchid collection. Do not expect no indication type name for fear of a visitors' sense of having "high, so that the orchids will adjourn .-

The condition is very concerned about orchids, but orchids of Papua has been known at national and international level. Complex shifted slightly from the less-ordered orchids, there are a number of bird cage containing a pair of taon-taon, sea eagle, and the child cassowary. A large pool without a fence, contains a small fish. This pool looks like a reservoir before it is applied to the cages. This is related to fresh water sources in the TBAB is not fresh anymore .-

As stared greenish-brown pond, we were struck by the strangeness of the third. Kukuruyuuukkk .... The sound the rooster crows. Partridge or chicken? Apparently some village chickens wander around the TBAB. May not occur if the chickens tetelo disease that can infect the birds in the TBAB. If transmission occurs sporadically and quickly with no early detection, it's over history .-

When going independent? - In the last 6 months (May-October 2002), TBAB visited by 973 people from within and abroad. Nearly 60% of visitors came from Biak and 16% from abroad. If each visitor entry fee Rp3.000 the manager will earn an average of about Rp486.000 per month. The amount is not even enough to pay the employee one TBAB. But it is still better than none at all. Later, the cost can be improved with the increase in facilities and services .-

Increasing TBAB facilities, services, and tourism options is a must if you want to seriously work on TBAB, as a vehicle for recreation, tourism and conservation education. There are three main components that must be a priority .-

First, human resources and management improvement TBAB in many ways and levels. Project approach is not the time anymore. Starting from the determination of admission which lacks the reciprocity of information services to visitors .- Second, repair and maintenance facilities existing TBAB, the new additions. Cage and food hygiene may be the main priority in this component. These facilities not only for birds and orchids, but also for the comfort of visitors fasum. For example cottage breaks, toilets and playground children .-

Third, integrated tourism promotion with other tourist attractions in Biak, such as cave tours Japan and the sea. This promo would require cooperation with private parties such as hotels and travel agencies .-

The opportunity to clean up there because there was a budget (read: the project) from local governments. It seemed wise, if managers do not have to wait for the project was stopped because of the opportunity must be sought, rather than anticipated. Currently, TBAB managed by one Project Leader (Pimpro) province, one district and one Pimpro Part Project Leader. Other employees are paid by honorarium / .-

Based on the project staff from the Forestry Department sources Biak, the project will be transferred to TBAB topic. Meanwhile, Biak be reopened as an international airport which allows the entry of direct foreign tourist flow to Biak. This policy shift is an opportunity which, if properly addressed later, TBAB will undoubtedly wind up like a luxury hotel that has become the pride of Biak .-

Ah, we were awakened from a dream because of bird cries of nasal taon. We got out of the park, fill the guest book and giving money "sympathy" to the guard. When we looked back, came fourth anomaly. Why no information opening hours and closing hours huh? Well ... do not try to come more than 2 hours a day deh ... the address will see the gates locked ... .-
