goodmorningpapua.com – After being included in the list of the 50 best tourism villages in Indonesia, Kampung Yoboi, Jayapura Regency, continually innovate to attract visitors.
The innovation for this time is the youth of Kampung Yoboi building a path to enter the Sago forest as long as 420 meters. This new tourism destination is named Tracking Sago Kampung Yoboi, by utilizing wood as the main material.
Every 100 meters there is a rest area or shelter that visitors can use as a resting place if they feel tired. This nature tour is very suitable to be visited on weekends or in your spare time.
The sago forest area has cool and fresh air, because it is covered with lush sago tree leaves dangling upwards. This environment is perfect for tourists who want to feel the sensation of natural adventure.
Billy Tokoro, one of the youth leaders who became the driving force in Yoboi Village, revealed that the Sago Tracking route is planned to be inaugurated on October 8, 2021. “After being inaugurated, it will only be opened to the public,” he said, Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
Visitors who want to enter the Sago Tracking track will be charged a fee and some applied rules. “For the costs and the rules, we must first meet with the villagers,” said Billy.
The idea for the construction of the Sago Tracking track, said Billy, started from a post on social media. The construction of this route also received an assistance from the Papua Provincial Forestry and Environment Office through the Jayapura Forestry Service Branch.
“Initially from posting our photos on Facebook, it turned out that the head of the Forestry Service was monitoring and interested in, so the idea came up to build a tourist route into the sago forest,” explained Billy.
Billy hopes that the new tourism destination in Yoboi Village can attract more tourists to visit, especially the athletes of PON XX to unwind after a match.
