baliem valley festival - 2018
the baliem Valley festival in Papua Wamena will be held in village of Dani from 08th to 11th of August 2018. During this festival of baliem valley we also recommend you to do a little trek in baliem valley, this tour we already provided in the special scheduled Trip on August 2018
Very often you will come across unique moments that you never want to miss. A number among the more than a thousand war participants, do want to keep abreast with the outside world, so they adorn themselves with local regalia, while sporting flashy sunglasses: a personal ad of a trendy look meeting age-old tradition. Ask them politely to pose for you. It’s an unusual anachronism not to be missed.
All you need to do during the festival is just observe and enjoy the mock war. The longer it gets, the nearer the spears and arrows get to hit the opponents. The closer the miss, the louder the roar from the hundreds of spectators. They have participated in these battles every year so that participants do get better each year.
The Balliem Valley Cultural Festival is a very rare chance to witness clans from different indigenous tribes displaying their culture and skills in tribal warfare, dance and music. It is a truly unforgettable experience and a real once in a lifetime opportunity.
