How to get there?
To go to Maybrat, you can depart from Sorong city. Sorong city itself is quite busy. The atmosphere is similar to cities on the Java island. It even has malls and big hotels. Out of Sorong city, the road to Maybrat is already good. The road is partially paved smooth. Part of the road is concrete. It is not uncommon for cars to go back and forth during the trip. Quiet. The road cut through the forest. There were no settlements either. In only a few sections, there are several shanties. Winding road. Go down the ridge up. It is enough to shake the stomach. It was quite hot. From Sorong city to Maybrat it is a 4 hour car trip.
