Walking to Springs
Place:
Dei Dei Hot Springs, Fergusson Island, Papua New Guinea
Description:
Four people wearing white hats and khakis walk down a narrow dirt path into a wooded forest.

D'Entrecasteaux Group.

Three tourists walk through the dense trees and grasses, toward the Dei Dei hot springs on Fergusson Island, the largest of three in the D'Entrecasteaux group of islands in Milne Bay Province near the eastern tip of New Guinea in the Solomon Sea. Birds of paradise, hawks, eagles, parrots and lorikeets abound in the lush vegetation and mountains. Large bird wing butterflies of iridescent blues and greens land on passersby fleetingly.
