Located on the Maoke Mountains, the Baliem Valley is a region of Papua New Guinea named after the river that runs through it.

On 80 kilometers long and 20 wide, the valley of Baliem is located at an altitude between one thousand and two thousand meters. The landscapes are sumptuous, oscillating between vast clearing, luxuriant forests and serpentine rivers.

It is mainly populated by Papuans of the Dani ethnic group. It is only in 1938 that a scientific expedition discovered this extraordinary agricultural population residing in this valley.

Today, the small Papuan villages welcome hikers curious to discover this picturesque and authentic scenery.
