Western New Guinea is one of the most mysterious parts of the world. Governed by Indonesia, this “land of a thousand cultures” is home to some 44 tribes that have never had any contact with the modern world. More than 700 languages coexist here. Discover Asmat, the legendary land of headhunters, a fascinating region of small villages with thatch-roofed stilt houses. Your Zodiac® dinghy will take you to the small town of Agats, where you will be greeted by war canoes and a show presenting traditional ceremonies. There you will be able to discover the wonderful crafts of the Asmat people, who honour their ancestors through figurative wooden sculptures.
