Tourism Potential of Papua Pegunungan Province, Lakes above the Clouds and Noah Flood Traces – A scientist from Cenderawasih University, Marinus Yaung, said that the government perhaps should dig deep enough to support development in the mountainous province of Papua.

“However, the final result that awaits is very promising, especially as a source of foreign exchange for the country,” he said in a written statement, quoted by, Sunday (10/7/2022).

For Marinus, when the transportation support infrastructure has been perfectly built in mountainous Papua, tourists will be spoiled for views that resemble the beauty of the Swiss Alps when traveling by land.

Furthermore, he enthusiastically told about Lake Habema covering an area of ​​224, 35 hectares. The lake, he believes, is a relic of ancient times. Instead of being fresh, the lake actually has salt water and there are a variety of fauna that exist there.

Even the presence of the lake is evidence that at the time of Noah, the flood really occurred and covered up to the upper region, considering the location of this lake which is at an altitude of 3,225 meters above sea level, which is almost as high as the peak of Mount Semeru on the island of Java which reaches 3,676. meters from sea level.

However, without easy access and reliable marketing, the world will never know how beautiful Lake Habema is, let alone know the interesting story that is believed to be the background of the lake’s existence.

Lake Habema not only has a view, but also has a very deep historical value, so that the selling value of Lake Habema is so high it will be very unfortunate if it is not maximized.

Therefore, he hopes that infrastructure development can support easy access for tourists to Lake Habema.

On the other hand, if you want to see the variety of fauna inhabiting Papua, the right destination is Lorentz National Park. This National Park is one of the largest national parks in Southeast Asia and is located within the Jayawijaya Regency, Mimika Regency, Asmat Regency, Yahukimo Regency, and Puncak Jaya Regency.

The size of Lorentz National Park is so vast that this national park is not entirely located in mountainous Papua, but can be accessed through the province. Marinus highly recommends this location for those who want to know more about Papua’s natural wealth.

Then, for tourists who have the pleasure of enjoying coffee, especially in the midst of cold weather, the enjoyment of the typical coffee of Wamena City, located in Jayawijaya Regency, should not be missed.

He said that coffee from Wamena and the Bintang Mountains was even exhibited at the 2022 Specialty Coffee Expo (SCE) organized by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Massachusetts, United States, last April.
