YALI TRIBE TREKKING, IRIAN JAYA

A 30-minute chartered flght to Angguruk or Kosarek area, it's about 35 miles southeast of Wamena live another tribe called Yali. The Yali live on hills and flat terrain deeper in the Baliem Valley. The temperature of this area is 20 C - 30 C in the day time and at night 10 C - 15 C. The total population of this area is 30.000 people.

This tribe has similar way of life like Dani but is shorter and "cleaner". The Yali tribesmen wear "koteka", the penis gourd, straight to front instead of straight up like the Dani do.

The Yali practice less sophisticated cultivation techniques than Dani and keep fewer pigs. They provide the Dani with decorative bird feathers as well as tree kangaroo and cuscus pelts and fine rare woods, long disappear from the Baliem Valley itself.

Yali tools have not changed in a thousand of years - stone axe of pointed shards wrapped tightly onto a wooden stick, net carrying bags supported from the forehead, thick bows five or six feet long, and arrowhead carved to a purpose -broad and flat for large game, a triple barb for birds, notched and tapered black for setting tribal disputes.

There are two actually main tribes in the area: Yali and Yalimo. Compared with the Dani people this tribe is much more primitive and less visited. They are also less influenced by outside world. There are no land transportation and accommodation available here, all must be trekked on foot.

The only air transportation to Angguruk or Kosarek is served by missionary small flight, that has to booked early in advance. Upon arrival in Angguruk, there're just only missionary's house, teacher's house or even local people's hut for accommodation. Food material must be taken along with, as there is no shop available in this region.
