Mt. Dore – Plum – Prony – La Fausse Yate : is a nice street, full of holes, so the speed is very slow and the trip from Noumea to Yate is around 3 hours.
The southern forest are short (3 meters max) , very dry and very hot. We crossed around 6-7 small rivers, near the rivers there are higher trees. Inside the water is possible to see fishes, so are not seasonal rivers.
All around , everywhere, there is a nice red soil. When it rains, rivers become orange like fruit juice. Arriving to La fausse near Yate the vegetation changes, but i was not lucky , was raining so much so i could not take great photoes or walk around.
We were so unlucky. we got 3 days of rain, jet lag and an intestinal virus due to the welcome cocktail. Not a good stay in the Kanua Tera Lodge. All around i found several species of animals, some Bavaya, some other lizards. Around the lodge there is a nice forest, very deep, dirty and untouched.
Reaching the Lake of Yate the vegetation becomes higher, there are some spots where is untouched and very natural.
Some parts are very natural, some small valleys are untouched. Nice trees, tall. Nice habitats. Emotionals. 😉
