HomeBlogs Arfak Mountains These beautiful mountains behind Manokwari are a
nature reserve famous for their high biodiversity, notably birdwing
butterflies. They are also a popular birdwatching area with several
endemic species. The Arfaks also offer excellent trekking possibilities
through steep, forested hills. There are lots of traditional villages
of thousand-legged houses” here, though the people themselves wear
modern dress. That said, they are very friendly and trekking here is
far less commercialised than in the central highlands.
