Baliem Valley Festival is a unique authentic event which brings together hundreds of people from Dani, Yali and Lani tribes in Papua. It probably is the only opportunity to observe tribal people in national clothes perform ancient rituals, sing, dance, recreate old wars and compete in pig racing, spear throwing, hunting and other traditional sports.
