Papua is divided between Indonesia and New Guinea, among Christians, animists and Muslims. It is also a paradise for birds! Indeed, this part of the world has hundreds of species. Triton Bay is their favorite sanctuary!
This area offers the last wild places in a virgin and untouched nature where are living isolated tribes such as the Dani, the Yali, the Lanis and many others … some of them were discovered very recently!
Dani and Yali tribes are living in the Baliem valley, which is undoubtedly the trek to do in Papua! Enjoy a trekking over several days to meet them and get unforgettable rich sceneries moments with forests and high mountain landscapes around! An experience not to be missed!
Cenderawasih Bay is the place to see the whale sharks. Here, you will enjoy the unique experience to swim with those massive species! You’ll be surprized by the calm they inspire. The whale shark is absolutely harmless to humans and feeds mostly of plankton and algae.
