A celebration of culture takes place next month when all the diverse tribes from the highlands of Wamena and the Baliem Valley such as the Dani, Lani, and the Yali congregate during their annual festival. Taking place from 6-8 August 2015 in the Usilimo District, Jayawijaya Regency, Papua Province, guests can witness a mock tribal warfare held between 30-50 warriors. Also taking place during the event will be traditional Papuan dances, pig racing, Puradan Rattan spear throwing and traditional Papuan musical performances.
Experience and encounter the unique culture of this region through Destination Asia Indonesia’s ‘Tribes of The East – Papua & the Dani’ program. This experiential joining of cultures reveals ancient traditions and places guests in the heart of warrior villages – including the Aikima and Dani villages. We live alongside tribespeople who share the beauty of their natural surroundings on a truly spectacular adventure.
