Birds of Paradise in Rainforest of Sorong Regency

Hiking and birding in Sorong regency of West Papua
Lesser Birds of Paradise
Sorong city as the gate to Raja Ampat islands has got its own attraction. There is tropical rainforest in the east of the regency that is the natural habitat of several species of birds of paradise such as Lesser Birds of Paradise (Paradisaea minor), Magnificent Riflebird (Ptiloris magnificus), Twelve-wired Bird of Paradise (Seleucidis melanoleucus), and King Bird of Paradise (Cicinnurus regius).
To watch those birds, tourists need at least 3 days/ 2 nights to explore the rainforest of Klabolo. There are simple huts in the forest for visitors to stay and to enjoy birdwatching. Villagers work as cooks, local guides, and porters.
