WAMENA HIGHLAND SHOW, KOROWAI, AND ASMAT / EXPEDITION / PAPUA

Three highlights in one tour! Special expedition to West Papua, including a visit to the colorful Baliem Cultural Festival in the highlands of Wamena. The Highland Show in the Baliem Valley has become internationally popular in recent years and more and more visitors are coming annualy. For three days, clans from all the highland regions gather in Wamena to present their unique culture and to compete in several ancient competitive disciplines.

From Wamena we directly continue to the Korowai forest nomads. Until today, the Korowai live very traditionally in tree houses up to 40 meters height, hidden deep in the forest of West Papua. The Korowai are one of the most original tribes in Papua and visiting them is a very special experience. As they live deep inside the forest, daily trekking is needed. This is physically the most demanding part of our journey.

From the Korowai area it takes about one day by boat to reach Asmat. The people of Asmat are world famous for their craftsmanship and imposing men houses. We plan one big ceremony where a full village will be involved - a spectacle almost no visitor is able to see! From the Asmat, we will fly out to Timika by charter plane.

No fan of Papuan culture should miss this tour!

 Carstensz Pyramid - Seven Summits - Papua

23.09.2019 - 12.10.2019 (20 days) (guaranteed)

CARSTENSZ PYRAMID / EXPEDITION / PAPUA

At 4,884 meters above sea level, the Carstensz Pyramid is the highest mountain on all of New Guinea and one of the famous "seven summits", the highest summits of the seven continents.

In 1962, the mountain was first climbed by Austrian Heinrich Harrer, and even today, expeditions to this mountainous region of New Guinea require complex permitting procedures. Due to his network of contacts, Dr. Weiglein is one of the few Papua experts who successfully guided and organized many expeditions to this region.

This expedition, from the jungles to the icy mountains of the Pacific, and the Carstensz Summit, is a truly unique adventure.

EASTERN COASTAL ASMAT / PAPUA

Expedition to the Eastern Coastal Asmat - A rarely visited region

This unique special expedition takes us to the real Asmat, far away from the main rivers!

KOROWAI INTENSIVE: CROSSING THE KOROWAI SECTOR / PAPUA

*including Baliem Valley and Bird of Paradise

This is a classic expedition to meet the Korowai tree house nomads. Still, to this this day, the Korowai live far away from civilization, deep in the forest of the Papua lowlands. During our tour we will cross the Korowai sector, from Mabul in the West to Yanirumah in the East. We will have many days in the forest based in and around the  Avium river. The deeper we walk into the sector, the more removed from civilization the people who we encounter will be. We plan to visit several Korowai settlements and will spend more time inside the sector than most visitors typically do. As we plan a daily trekking of a minimum of 4 hours, a certain level of fitness is necessary to participate in this tour. We will leave the sector from Yanirumah with a missionary charter flight to Wamena. Here, in Wamena, we will spend several days in the area of the fascinating Dani tribe, in the highlands of Papua, where we will also attend a traditional pig festival. Rounding off our trip is a visit to a bird park on the north coast, with guided tours to the birds of paradise.

Unbeatable value for money.

EUR 4.490,-- (from/ to Denpasar, Bali) in 1/2 double room/tent

EUR    350,-- single supplement
