West Papua is the East tip of Indonesia province and becomes the forgotten island for the last decades. Papua has a lot of potential that haven't been reached by government. There are standing upright the white land (snow) at one of the seven summit in the world...Cartensz Pyramid.
Baliem Valley is another spectacular treasure for nature resources at Papua land. The Valley is 60 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide and is surrounded on all sides by mountain peaks rising to between 2,500 and 3,000 meters, which an ideal location for innovative trek that follows trails through the jungle and mountain environment. The trekking itself is considered moderate to challenging grade as well trek up and down the hills, cross rivers an thru its slippery banks. The Baliem Highlands is centered on the Grand Valley some 1,600m above the sea level. Temperatures of the highland are ranged from 26 degrees Celcius at the day time and 12 degrees at night.
There are three main tribes that inhabit the baliem valley : Dani tribe in the lowest plain, Lani tribe in west and Yali tribe in south-east. Each tribe has a different culture. One sure and interesting way to distinguish those tribes is from Koteka, or penis gourds, worn by men. The Dani tribe uses a long thin of koteka, Lani tribe uses the round shape, and Yali tribe using the longest koteka of all with the rattan around the waist. Usually single women - Dani or Lani tribes - wearing short leather skirts under the buttocks, while married women wearing orchid fiber skirts, sometimes decorated with straw and woven bags called "noken" and placed on their backs. Dani and Lani are closely related - speak in different dialects of the same language but can still understand each other. While Yali tribe speaks in completely different language with other tribes. They live in a distant virgin forest located on a higher plateau. Can take 5 days trip by land to reach it.
Before 1970, the yali tribe closed from the outside world and was suspected to be still cannibals before the missionaries introduction the Christian religion and opened to the outside world.
