Telaga Cinta (Love Lake) – Jayapura regency

In Ebungfau district, Jayapura regency, there is a lake with its unique form, many people call it Telaga Cinta or the Lake of Love, although local residents call them Lake Imfote, after the name of the site.

Frequented by visitors almost daily, especially on the weekends, Love Lake is can be accessed by land and water transportation. The land route by motorcycle or car can start from Jayapura city through Genyem district in Jayapura regency or from Arso district in Keerom regency.

The water route can be covered by boat or speedboat from Yahim port behind Sentani Airport to Kawi port in Putaly village, before climbing a hill or going by motorcycle or car along a highway already built there.

The road to Love Lake by land begins from Yoka village, leading to Puay village with a winding way going uphill and downhill. On the right is the blue expanse of Lake Sentani with sago trees on its banks; on the left is the dense forest of Abepura. Only the track leading to the lake is a natural path.

Around 5 kilometers away from Love Lake is another tourist attraction named the Jaipuri River, the only stream that channels Lake Sentani’s water to the Tami River before emptying into the sea. Jaipuri also offers lodgings to tourists. It took about one-and-a-half hours from the river to arrive at Love Lake on a hot weekend, where visitors, mostly young motorcyclists, were already lining the edges of the lake and taking pictures with their cameras or selfies with their cell phones.

The beauty of Love Lake overwhelmed the heat of the day. There were no huts or structures around apart from a tall cross-shaped wooden frame, erected during the commemoration of Easter. Such crosses can be found along the road of Hansambe hamlet, the last settlement before reaching the barren hill near Imfote.

The Lake of Love’s beauty is enhanced by the vastness of Lake Sentani and the height of Mount Cyclop, which serve as a water source for residents of Jayapura regency and city. Situated at a high altitude, it is visible from the air. Meanwhile, on the ground, the treeless area with strong winds and scorching sunlight forces tourists to use sun block or wear broad-brimmed hats.
