Within the Raja Ampat regency of islands, lies the Misool archipelago. Within the Misool archipelago exists a small island called Lenmakana. Lenmakana Island houses a large population of stingless jellyfish in its hidden lake – one of the three mysterious jellyfish lakes in Misool.
It is an arduous trek to reach the secluded lagoon, referred to as Lemankana jellyfish lake. Still, the island’s biodiversity makes for scenery that does not disappoint, even when you are hiking. The experience of swimming among the gentle creatures is undoubtedly well worth the climb. Lenmakana jellyfish lake was only recently discovered, so do not expect very many tourists to be accompanying you.
As with another Misool’s jellyfish lake, the best time to visit Lemankana is around noon when the water is warm, and the golden jellyfish cause the lake to glow. Swimming amongst hundreds of these delicate, curious creatures as exotic life echoes throughout the forests will create a magical memory.
