Tari is located in the Southern Highlands, known as Papuan Wonderland by the western explorers who discovered these stunning high valleys and limestone peaks in 1935. Tari is the home of many types of orchid, over 13 different species of Birds of Paradise, and the remarkable Huli tribe, who are famous for their wigs and live much as their ancestors have for centuries. Indeed, Tari is one of the last areas in Papua where traditional attire is still worn by the locals.
