Photo by @TimLaman. A high valley in the Lorentz National Park filled with tree ferns and limestone outcrops has a real “lost world” feel to it. I was keeping my eye out for dinosaurs, but no luck. This habitat is at about 3500 meters elevation where temperatures regularly drop to around freezing at night, even here near the equator. See @TimLaman for more from my explorations of the rarely visited alpine environment of Papua, Indonesia. #LostWorld, #Indonesia, #LorentzNationalPark, #Papua, #IndonesiaBiodiversity.

#Repost @natgeo Thanking Tim Laman for this picture as the picture itself is just so beautiful. I wonder how beautiful it is in real life. I love ferns!

Woah! no wonder these birds have a yoga pose named after them. #SvargaDvijasana Repost @natgeo ・・・ “Photo by @TimLaman. The Splendid Astrapia Bird-of-Paradise, found only here in the high mountains of New Guinea, such as this area around Lake Habbema in Papua, Indonesia. Photographed at 3300 meters feeding on Schefflera fruits. This bird has some amazing iridescent feathers all over its head and neck that look black from some angles, but when the bird looks toward you and catches the light, are a shimmering green color.

Danau Habema merupakan salah satu danau yang ada di TN Lorentz. Danau Habema berada di ketinggian 3225 mdpl. Danau Habema memilik akses yang relatif mudah dan dapat ditempuh dalam waktu 2-3 jam dari Wamena. Bagi masyarakat lokal suku Dani, danau ini disebut Yuginopa yang dijadikan sebagai tempat keramat. Sepanjang perjalanan akan disuguhi pemandangan alam yang luar biasa menyejukkan mata, hati dan pikiran. Sesampainya di lokasi juga akan melihat bagaimana Sang Pencipta melukiskan mahakarya-Nya yang begitu luar biasa. Di belakang Danau Habema terlihat Puncak Trikora tidak kalah gagahnya~ . . . . . . #LorentzNationalPark #AyoKeTamanNasional at Habema Lake

Jangan lupa Like, Komen & Share , Photo by @TimLaman. This road climbs through the remote wilderness of Lorentz National Park past Lake Habbema and over a pass in the Jayawijaya Mountains at 3700 meters, and is likely one of the most remote and highest roads in Indonesia. A road through a wilderness is a scar on the landscape to be sure, but it also provides unprecedented access for exploration… a mixed blessing, but it certainly allowed me to get up into this amazing zone of scoured limestone rock and unique plant and animal life to document the biodiversity here. The area in this photo was covered by ice less than 100 years ago.

#seputargunung dari @fredyparabang : Gugusan Pegunungan Sudirman dengan Puncak tertingginya Carstensz Pyramid mencapai 4.884 mdpl menyimpan banyak misteri yang banyak belum diungkap baik keanekaragaman hayatinya maupun fisiografisnya yang unik dengan adanya lapisan es yang tidak umum ditemui pada daerah tropis. . Terletak di bagian barat kawasan Taman Nasional Lorentz, bagian pegunungan ini merupakan destinasi pendakian yang cukup populer. Nama Carstensz Pyramid diambil dari nama seorang penjelajah Eropa yang dalam pelayarannya melintasi Laut Arafura pada tahun 1623 melaporkan adanya puncak-puncak gunung yang diselimuti salju. Masyarakat lokal sendiri menyebutnya dengan nama Nemangkawi Ninggok yang berarti anak panah putih. _ Kreatif : @dasilvalew12 Dok @lorentznationalpark , Papua, Indonesia. _ #ayoketamannasional #lorentznationalpark #gunungindonesia #papua #indonesia

This little-visited area of Papua, Indonesia is a World Heritage Site with amazing scenery and biological diversity, and so much potential for ecotourism. It can be reached by a pretty good road now from Wamena, so is quite feasible to visit. I hope you have a chance to experience the beauty yourself…. #Indonesia, #LorentzNationalPark, #Papua

This road climbs through the remote wilderness of Lorentz National Park past lake Habbema and over a pass in the Jayawijaya Mountains at 3700 meters, and is likely one of the most remote and highest roads in Indonesia. A road through a wilderness is a scar on the landscape to be sure, but it also provides unprecedented access for exploration… a mixed blessing, but it certainly allowed me to get up into this amazing zone of scoured limestone rock and unique plant and animal life to document the biodiversity here. #Indonesia, #LorentzNationalPark, #Papua Photo by @TimLaman.

Photo by @TimLaman. The high peaks of the Jayawijaya or “Snow Mountains” are no longer covered in snow, but they were not that long ago. When first sighted by Europeans in the 1600’s there were extensive snow caps along this range, but it disappeared from this area by the mid 1900’s. But you can clearly see the signs of past ice cover here on these exposed limestone peaks, which are scraped smooth and polished on top. #Indonesia, #LorentzNationalPark, #Papua

Danau Habema 3220 Mdpl, Wamena, Papua Danau selalu saja menjadi fenomena alam yang menarik untuk dikunjungi di manapun letaknya di belahan bumi ini, begitu juga Danau Habema yang berada dalam kawasan Taman Nasional Lorentz. Fisiografi TN Lorentz yang unik sebenarnya menyediakan banyak danau yang menarik untuk dikunjungi, hanya saja banyak diantaranya begitu sulit diakses karena terletak pada elevasi rata-rata diatas 3000, bahkan 4000 mdpl seperti danau Dindike (Uelesi) dan Larson. Danau-danau di dalam kawasan Lorentz memiliki keunikan tersendiri karena mayoritasnya adalah danau gletser yang merupakan tampungan lelehan es dari puncak-puncak bersalju yang berada diatasnya. Lembah-lembah pegunungan Jayawijaya di Barisan Sudirman terutama yang terletak di batas bagian Barat kawasan menjadi tempat yang nyata untuk menyaksikan keindahan panorama danau-danau yang sangat dramatis. Nama Habema diadopsi dari nama seorang perwira detasemen militer Belanda, Letnan D. Habbema, yang mengawasi detasemen militer pada ekspedisi pimpinan H. A. Lorentz tahun 1909 dengan misi utama untuk mencapai salju tropis yang terdapat di Puncak Wilhelmina (Puncak Trikora saat ini) yang terletak di Selatan Danau Habema. Sedangkan bagi masyarakat lokal sepert suku Dani yang menjadikan Habema sebagai tempat keramat, danau ini disebut dengan nama Yuginopa. Bagi masyarakat lokal, danau ini memiliki nilai arti sejarah yang tinggi dan menjadi awal mula pembagian suku-suku yang terdapat di Pegunungan Tengah sekarang ini . Danau Habema merupakan satu-satunya danau di dalam kawasan TN Lorentz yang dapat diakses melalui jalan darat. Dari Wamena, perjalanan dapat ditempuh melalui jalan berbatu dengan jarak sekitar 42 km selama 2-3 jam menggunakan kendaraan berpenggerak 4x4 yang terlihat umum digunakan di daerah dengan medan sulit dan kemiringan curam. Waktu yang baik untuk memulai perjalanan adalah pagi hari. - - Photo by @bayuamdewinata @gunungindonesia - #ayoketamannasional #tamannasionallorentz #lorentznationalpark #conservationmate #kementerianLHK #Indonesia

Peak Trikora, the third highest summit in Indonesia at 4730 meters (15,580 feet) is hit by the rising sun as I viewed it from Lake Habbema. This is on the huge island of New Guinea (second largest island in the world after Greenland), and this peak is just one of many along the enormous mountain chain that runs across the spine of New Guinea island spanning the Western half (that is Papua, Indonesia) and the Eastern half (which is the independent country of Papua New Guinea). The highest peak is Puncak Jaya aka Carstenz Pyramid at 4884 meters, which is about 200 km west down the spine from here, also in Indonesia. I’m exploring the biodiversity of the alpine environment here in Papua, which is rich in endemic plants, birds, and lots else. . .

Photo by @TimLaman. Mist hovers over Lake Habbema, as the rising sun illuminates the atmosphere above the mountains and paints the sky before the first rays touch the peaks. I’m exploring the alpine environment here in Indonesia’s Lorentz National Park, in Papua Province in the Western half of the big island of New Guinea around this lake at 3200 meters elevation and above, where many unique plants and animals are found. #Indonesiabiodiversity, #Indonesia, #LorentzNationalPark, #Papua
