We start in picturesque Bali where we explore local traditions, visit landmarks, do rafting and spend a day at the beach. Then we travel to catch Baliem Valley Festival - 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. Most participants usually bring traditional crafts with them, like kotekas (penis guards), bows, arrows, and garments. After the festival we will do a 3 days trek in the jungle, visiting villages and enjoying nature.
