About Me/ Contact

Hi, I am Charles Roring. I write this blog to promote eco-tourism, empower the indigenous people, and at the same time preserve the rainforest and coral reef environment of West Papua.
Most of the posts are about my travel reports after trekking and camping in the jungle, birding, caving, snorkeling and other outdoor activities. If you are interested in visiting West Papua to see its natural beauty and experience such activities, please contact me by

Your Preparation
Trekking in the tropical jungle of West Papua is a fascinating activity. You will be able to see the beautiful scenery of the mountains, slopes that go down to the beach, colorful flowers; butterflies and sometimes the beatiful birds of paradise that perform courtship dance in the mornings and in the afternoons. However, trekking also needs physical endurance. Please, do regular exercises, such as jogging or walking as your preparation before visiting the tropical rainforest of West Papua.
I used to guide a tourist on a trekking tour in the forest. After hours of walking and exploring the ecosystem of the jungle, she told me that she felt severe pain in her back and leg muscles. Back to the hotel, I had to change my profession from being a guide to working as a massage therapist. Fortunately, I've got the skill.
So, in addition to bringing food, binoculars, camera,  head lamp, sleeping bag for your trekking trip, you need to do regular exercise before visiting West Papua.

Well, I am learning some basics of French language now. If you are a French tourist who plan to visit Papua and need me to provide guiding service, you may give me some private lessons in return.
