West Papua vs 'Easy' West Papua tour comparision

As many participants ask us about the differences between our standard four-week West Papua itinerary and our popular 'Easy' West Papua tour, below is a list of species found on the more intensive, four-week tour, with notes on their status on the 'Easy' tour. Please note: As we spend three days less in the Arfak Mountains, without the camping, all Arfak species in the itinerary will have reduced chances.
