    Ngiratkel Etpison State Building
    4 more images

    This is a small quiet village which has a couple interesting things to see. It's a struggle to find this village,because there are no signboards telling you where to drive.

    After about 11 km's on the main western road from south, take left (Dirt Road). after 3 km's, take right and you will arrive Ngatpang after 5 km's.

    The first thing you will find is the Ngiratkel Etpison State Building. The doors is open, but there are nobody inside. In the garden of this building there is a bust of a former president of
    the Ngiratkel Etpison. It's also and old machine gun in this garden.

    300 meters down of this building you can see mangrove forrest.

    If you take to the right in the intersection close to the building you will find a pier after 1 km, where you can have a swim or watch the locals fishing.

    Old weather prediction stones

    The weather stones
    1 more image

    These stones was used in former times to predict the weather.

    This is not an "must see" attraction, but the 5 minutes hike in the jungle was nice.

    500 meters north of the Japanees war memorial ground on westhern part of the island you will find a historical site sign on the main road. Park your car and walk up to the house and ask for help. The guy living there will be your guide for couble og dollars, you will need this guide to find the stones.
