The Tanah Papua expedition team saw the diversity of plants around Lake Habema in the Lorentz National Park area, Jayawijaya Regency, Saturday (11/13/2021).

Birds chirping cut the silence as the night fell at Lake Habema, Jayawijaya regency, Papua. The moonlight got reflected on the surface of the lake which was at an altitude of 3,200 meters above sea level.

This was our second night at Lake Habema in the Papua Expedition series. On a hill on the north side of the lake, we pitched the tent that became our “home” for the past two days. It’s an opportunity to experience and know Lorentz National Park.
