Baliem Valley

Baliem Valley is one of the must visits if you ever make it to the island of Papua. The main town and access point here is Wamena, but do take the time to explore the nearby villages, home to the Dani people who have kept their traditions going strong. consider visiting during August when the Baliem Valley Festival is happening to see traditions like mock wars and earth cooking on display.
