raja ampat

yeap, tempat ini belakangan makin sering disebut-sebut, karena keindahan bawah lautnya, panorama alamnya, maupun karena mahalnya budget yang dibutuhkan untuk dapat menikmati liburan di sini. Ga heran kalo tempat ini menjadi salah satu tempat liburan yang paling diimpikan banyak orang, termasuk gw 😛

yeah, apapun yang berkaitan dengan selalu bikin gw ileran, apalagi ngeliat foto2nya, booook… gw suka merinding takjub sama pesonanya.

Ga susah buat nemuin informasi tentang raja ampat, di gugling aja, langsung deh keluar info2 yang ngebikin iler gw makin deres, sedikit cuplikan dari guglingan gw;

Raja Ampats, located west of the Birds Head Peninsula, are administratively part of Papua Barat/Iran Jaya, but they are very different from the rest of west Papua, which the travel guides are focused on. Geographically and when it comes to nature, history and culture, the Ampats are in many ways closer to Moluku. This small area in Indonesia has the richest coral reef life in the world. Kind of the coral reef epicenter of the planet.

Apart from the reefs, this area also has some of the most stunning top-side views in the world; lime stone islands that reminds you of, but are even more dramatic than, the famous Rock Islands of Palau; big cathedral-like caves inside the islands; quiet lagoons with crystal white sand and water in every shade of blue and green; bird life such as the Birds of Paradise that brought Alfred Russel Wallace to this region over a century ago; the most stunning sunsets you’ll ever see; and – almost no tourists..

Raja Ampat* means “the four ‘kings'”, a name dating back to the 15th century, when the Sultanate of Tidore – one of the muslim sultanates in the original Maluku west of Halmahera – appointed four local “rajas” in Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo.

1,606 species of reef fish in the Bird’s Head Seascape
1,397 species of reef fish in Raja Ampat
35 species of endemic reef fish found only in the Birds Head Seascape
603 species of hard coral recorded in the Bird’s Head Seascape
75% of all known coral species in the world
10 times the number of hard coral species found in the entire Caribbean
57
species of Mantis Shrimp in the Birds Head Seascape
13
species of Marine Mammals in the Bird’s Head Seascape
5
species of endangered sea turtles in the Bird’s Head Seascape

makin dicari informasinya, gw makin banjir iler, ga ada matinya nih emang raja ampat, padahal gw kan gabisa diving, gapunya duit juga buat jalan2 kesono, cuma bisa ngimpi. *(untung aja ngimpi masih gratis, kebayang kalo musti bayar juga)
