Baliem Valley Tour Package

  • 5 Days
  • Tribes
  • Moderate

Baliem Valley Tour Package itinerary is more comfortable than Baliem Trekking, since in the tour program, after trekking you will back to the hotel in Wamena. But in the trekking program, you stay at a local house.

During the Baliem Valley tour, besides trekking along the Baliem Valley river, you will see War Dance Performance and Pig Feast/ These 2 attractions allow you to have an insight view of the prehistoric age culture. In the past, any kind of problem can erupt into a big war between tribes. It can be women, land possession, pig, etc. A war usually ends temporarily until one party gets loose.

Today they will show us what the tribal war looks like. All adult men will come to the battlefield with their body ornaments. Spears, arrows, and bone knives are taken by them. After the war ended, they will kill a pig and cooked together. Another interesting attraction of the Dani tribe. They cook the pork together with some sweet potatoes, grass, and vegetables on the hot stones. Almost no ingredients were added. This cooking can take about 3 hours or so.

*Anyway, to get a more affordable price for the Baliem valley tour package we could eliminate this war dance & pig feast attraction from the itinerary.

Alternative Program with War Dance, But NO PIG FEAST

From the car stop at Obia Village, we walk a few minutes to the entrance of the village, where will enjoy the Dani Mock battle.  This attraction shows people what the past tribal war looks like, and how it ended. It involved 2 sides / 2 villages, each of the village civilians will come to the battleground with full body ornaments, as well as spears, arrows, and bone knives.

War is a method used by this tribe as a last resort in any disputes with other tribes. In fact, this war will be considered finished and fair if the number of victims killed on both sides is equal. In a real war, if the number of victims died is different, then the losing side will slaughter the pig with the same amount as the difference between the victims on their side. The slaughter of this pig is a symbol that they will seek revenge in the future, with the same number of the difference of victims on their side.

Proceed to Anemoigi and Sumpaima villages, about 10 minute's ride from Obia, where we will see a 250-year-old mummy at one of the old houses here. Lunch box provided.
