Lake Ku­tubu

Papua New Guinea Business Travel Guide - - News -

“Ac­cord­ing to leg­end, the Lake Ku­tubu was formed when a fig tree was cut down by a woman look­ing for water. The story goes that what­ever the tree touched turned to water - hence the lake. To­day it’s oil that’s caus­ing a rip­ple in this pre­vi­ously re­mote area. The estab­lish­ment of oil­fields near Lake Ku­tubu has re­cently caused so­cial and eco­nomic up­heaval, in­clud­ing an in­flux of itin­er­ants in search of work… It is also pos­si­ble to trek to Wasi Falls from Lake Ku­tubu via an overnight stop in the Foimeana vil­lage of Kan­tobo. Treks can be ar­ranged through Tubo Lodge.”
