Today you will be introduced to the village life of the Dani people. You will head to the southern part of the Baliem Valley for a tour and trek. This area has beautiful views and is surrounded by great mountains. You will cross over the rough Baliem River by suspension bridge and pass the gardens of the local people to see their different crops. The gardens are sometimes built on very steep hills. The local people that you will meet during the trek are very friendly. They are often on their way to carry their harvest to the markets in Wamena town. Some come from villages far away and have to walk for a couple of days to get to Wamena. It is very impressive to see how strong these people are. This is a great day to get to know the people in the valley, see where they live and learn about their local life style before witnessing the beautiful festival the next days.

Indigenous tribes from several clans (Dani, Lani tribes) travel from their isolated villages all the way to Wamena town to celebrate their traditions. And you can be part of that! During the festival you will see the tribes in their local attires wearing the famous penis gourds and dancing around with their war equipment’s like their bows and arrows. Also you will have the chance to see the pig feast called Barapen. A traditional way of preparing food using hot burned stones in a pit and where vegetable and meat steam in the ground until it is cooked. Other than that make sure not to miss out on the local pig racing activities, which is a fun activity to watch.
