Amidst the dense Waisai forest on Waigeo island, after a jungle trek and fishing boat crossing, you’ll stumble upon the natural wonder of Kali Biru Raja Ampat. Also known as Blue River Raja Ampat, you may want a guide to take you there.
So what is so special about Kali Biru blue river? When sunlight hits the surface, water molecules absorb long red waves in the light spectrum – followed by yellow, green, purple, and blue – creating a unique shade of cobalt guaranteed to astound!
According to ancient folklore, certain parts of the river are bathing spots for Raja Waigeo. While not every part of Kali Biru Raja Ampat exhibits the unbelievable blue color the river is famous for, once you find the unique blue sections, you will never forget it. Kali Biru is genuinely a location in Raja Ampat that needs to be experienced rather than read about or photographed.
