Papua New Guinea is culturally rich and geographically remote with some of the most stunning scenery anywhere and like no other place on earth. Meet and learn about the many tribal groups including the Asaro Mudmen, the Wangi, the Simbu, the Kaguel and the fascinating Trobriand Islanders. Come and celebrate during the Singsing Festival at Mt Hagen in August. The Singsing festival is filled with tribal displays of the song and dance from more than 80 tribes traditionally dressed in a colorful extravaganza that includes face and body paint, feathers and masks, as the tribes people perform with the rhythms of their drums.
