Papua

This easternmost province of Indonesia (formerly known as West Irian Jaya) comprises the western half of the island of New Guinea, the world’s largest and highest tropical island, while the eastern half is the independent country of Papua New Guinea. Papua retains many traditional cultures and is home to some of the richest biodiversity in the world. Lorentz National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest protected area in the Asia-Pacific region, ranges from Papua’s southwest coast to its central mountains. Tourism concentrates in two regions, one of them being the Asmat region in southwest Papua.
The region is vast, covered in primary rainforest and swamp forest, and covers approximately 1.5 million hectares. Asmat is notable both for the rich and vibrant traditional tribal culture and art as well as its globally significant biodiversity. Given the terrain, all transportation between villages must take place by canoe with an outboard motor. The other region, with easier accessibility and much easier to travel within is the Baliem Valley, which is mostly occupied by the very friendly Dani Tribe. Travelers usually arrive in Wamena by flight from Bali via Jayapura.

Papua Adventure Tours

There is authentic-style and very comfortable accommodation as a home base, making the adventurous day trips enjoyable and very much endurable for almost any age. Even very close by the accommodation there are Dani hamlets to be found, and typical day trip excursions take you by boat, on foot crossing suspension bridges over rivers, as well as some portions by safari bus to the many Dani settlements and of course deep inside the lush rainforest. Visiting colorful local markets, mountain passes with breathtaking views, and enjoying unique Dani hospitality when partaking in a traditional pig cooking festival make a trip to this unique eco-tourism destination a lifetime experience. “Papua retains many traditional cultures and is home to some of the richest biodiversity in the world.
