TESTIMONIALS

Having travelled quite intrepidly, we wanted a trip that wouldn't fall into the traditional category of 'honeymoon' -- so we decided on Papua New Guinea.

Mount Hagen

In 1933, Mount Hagen was the site of first contact between New Guinean tribes and the Australian Leahy expedition, spearheaded by brothers Michael and Dan, the first westerners to set foot in the valley. Today, Mount Hagen is the third largest city in Papua New Guinea and the capital of the Western Highlands Province. It sits at a comfortable 5,502 feet (1,677 meters) above sea level, and because of its elevation remains mild and comfortable year round. Due to its relative isolation, the tribes living in and around Mount Hagen have, for the most part, managed to preserve their customs and traditions.
