Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web
Winding through the landscape of Papua New Guinea is Sepik River, the island's longest river and one of the the largest uncontaminated freshwater wetland systems in the Asia-Pacific area. The river has long been a resource for native peoples, and a journey along this feature will include several tribal villages where ancient customs are still followed. It is highly recommended that you go on this arduous adventure with a guide. Choose an English-speaking guide who can also communicate with (and is on good terms with) the village people. Tour companies surrounding this attraction typically provide a survival kit with mosquito nets and basic food provisions. Consider bringing small gifts to give your village friends along the way, like candy, Tylenol, or cheap headlamps.
