On this 17 days/ 16 nights group tour from/to Jayapura, we experience 3 highlights in one tour. First, we go on an intensive journey to the Korowai, who still live very traditionally in tree houses up to 40 meters high. The Korowai are one of the most original tribes in Papua and visiting them is a very special experience. Since they live deep in the forest, daily trekking is necessary. From the Korowai, we go by boat to the area of the former headhunters of Asmat. They are world famous for their craftsmanship and culture. We attend a large ceremony involving hundreds of decorated Asmat – a spectacle that visitors rarely get to see! From the Asmat, we fly by charter plane directly to the Baliem Valley. Here we visit the colorful Baliem Valley Festival, in which numerous Dani tribes participate. The spectacular war and dance performances are overwhelming. As it can be very crowded, we also organize a private festival in a traditional village near our Resort on the second day of the public festival. On this day, our guests can choose to attend the public festival, or our exclusive festival.
