IRIAN JAYA

THIS TRIP IS OPERATED BY ADVENTURE INDONESIA IRIAN JAYA BRANCH

What an amazing crew !!. They made our life so comfortable - and contributed so much to the shoot - we were talking amongst the crew about giving our guide a producer credit on the show that's how on it he was, and knowing of what we needed to have for a successful shoot in Irian Jaya after the first day on the job - it's hard to find that sometimes in LA.

Overall i would give your outfit a 10 out of 10, can't say enough about how well we were all taken care of and the knowledge of the area we traveled was unbelievable. Your guys turned out to be some of our best assets on the team out there.

The episode airs in november on the travel channel. I'll send you a copy of the show when we finish cutting it and there is going to be an article in the october issue of outside magazine based on the expedition - will include some of those as well

Thanks again for all of your help

West Papua Province somewhere in the southern pacific. There have not probably many people known the Papua very well except for those who like adventures. This Province comprises the western half of the huge island of New Guinea situated just northern tip of Australia. The eastern half of the island is another country of Papua New Guinea.

Located in the most eastern part of Indonesia, Irian Jaya is the country's most spectacular region for tourism where whole great swaths of earth can still be accurately as totally wild; thousand of kilometers of jungle with unknown and unclassified flora and fauna, ice capped mountains, swamps, isolated and primitive cultures; all are waiting to be explored

The population of West Papua province is about 2 million. About 10 percent of the population live in the cool central highlands of Baliem Valley.

Almost half of this province - was once base of the American and Allied Force during the Pacific War led by General Douglas Mc Arthur - is hilly or mountainous and about ten major peaks reach over 4,000 meters. The tallest is Carstensz Pyramid (4,884 meter above sea level/16,023 feet from which flows a glacier.

IRIAN JAYA WEST PAPUA PEOPLE AND WAY OF LIFE

The indigenous people of this province are Melanesians with black skins and curly hair. They generally have a root crop subsistence agriculture based on sweet potatoes and taros

The people of Irian Jaya obtain their starch from the sago palm which gives and extremely generous yield for remarkably little effort. Feral and domesticated pigs on the island is originally came from Southeast Asia was an event which has had vast cultural and ritual significance for its people. Pigs are often treated as members of the family and are sometimes suckled by women.

While many other people of the world were still hunters and gatherers, Papua people had begun to garden. After fairly recently, many of them lived with a simple Stone Age Culture wearing little clothing and decorating their bodies with paintings, shells, pig tusks, feathers and skins. There is a plethora of language in the province, perhaps some 250 in all, each representing a tribal group which mixes little with the others. Some of the more remote groups still have virtually no contact with the outside world.

FLORA AND FAUNA
Papua island may have the richest wildlife and concentration of plant life in all of Indonesia, or perhaps the world. No other islands in the archipelago can match its various kind of Birds of Paradise, Parrot families, pigeons and Flightless Cassowary.

This province is also home of 150 species of lizards, 30,000 species of beetles, 200 frogs and 800 spiders. A high percentage of the island's 100 snake species are poisonous, including all 17 species of sea snakes.

There are altogether some 2,700 species of orchids found in Papua Province, 600 species that are medicinal importance and over 124 endemic genera. The lush vegetation of the province is in fact a deceptive cover over poor soils badly leached by heavy rain and containing no rich volcanic materials. Mangroves and Nipah Palms ensnare the brackish estuaries of the coast.

Our programs are designed to take you visiting several nice villages on Baliem Valley. We do trekking from village to village, meet them at work, stay at their local house to have a real feeling of the adventure. And, not to forget is the pig feast and war dance attraction held by the cheif of the tribe.
