The snorkeling tour in Raja Ampat can also be combined with trekking and camping tour in mainland New Guinea particularly in Tambrauw Regency. Visitors usually spend 4 days/ 3 nights camping and trekking in the jungle of Tambrauw regency along the banks of Syuan or Syugrar river.
Birds such as sulphur crested cockatoo, blyth's hornbill, and grey crow fly over the canopy of the forest in search of fruits. In the morning, visitors will walk deeper into the jungle and up steep slopes to watch birds of paradise.
