Harfat Jaya, on Dapunlol Island, is the highest mountain in Misool – named after an adventurous local couple who discovered it. Harfat Jaya peak is known as the ‘Wayag of the South Raja Ampat.’ This jaw-dropping sight has 180-degree visibility at numerous points during the climb.
Witness rugged karsts and the shallows of sandy sea-beds, which dye the crystal water with vivid shades of blue, creating colorful mini-atolls. In contrast to the peak on Wayag island, Harfat Jaya peak is a much easier climb, with wooden stairs granting access to a heavenly view. The hike is short but steep, so be prepared to break a sweat and make sure to have plenty of water. No tour guide is necessary for this climb, but be sure to have your cameras ready!
