TESTIMONIALS

"Overall, the trip was fun and interesting and it was comforting to know that Remote Lands was behind the scenes."
A Couple from Virginia

Papua

Inhabited for over 60,000 years, Papua is a land of strange and startling contrasts; here, snowfields and glaciers exist alongside swamps and jungles. Following Indonesia's independence from the Dutch, the inhabitants of West Papua, then known as Irian Jaya, were subjected to a vote: either they would stay with Indonesia, or become their own, independent nation.

As the western half of New Guinea, the world's second largest island, the inhabitants of Papua are ethnically and culturally distinct than the rest of Indonesia; in Papua itself, almost 250 languages are spoken by a variety of peoples, including Yali pygmies, Dani tribesmen, and nomadic peoples who live on Lake Sentani.
