The annual Liklik Diwai expo was hosted by Divine Word University in Madang on Friday, September 23.
As exhibited at the expo, Snow Pass is an eco-lodge settled at 2,200m on a ridge top bordering three provinces, namely Eastern Highlands, Chimbu and Jiwaka.
The eco-lodge specialises in offering eco-tourism products and services such as tracking, bird watching, star gazing, culture and the rich flora and faunas.
Snow Pass Eco-Lodge managing director Vincent Kumura said the expo was a success and it was satisfying to see the public taking interest in eco-tourism.
Located at mid-point between the majestic Ramu plains and the lofty ridges of Mt. Wilhelm, it is a major transition point for migrating birds passing up and down.
The lodge currently has a three-bedroom mountain cabin that could sleep a maximum of six backpackers or trackers.
“We are currently building a five-bedroom cabin that should sleep up to 10 more backpackers, which should be completed by the end of November.
“Snow Pass Eco-Lodge is a place where pristine nature and peacefulness meets only to be complemented by a wonderful culture and friendly hospitable Gende people,” Kumura explained.
He thanked the Chimbu Province Governor Noah Kool and others for the support at the expo.
