Introduction of Papua (Irian Jaya)

Western half of New Guinea is belong to Indonesia country as we called Papua province (formerly Irian Jaya) with about 75 percent is covered with tropical forests. In February of 2003 Government created new Province namely West Irian Jaya and was renamed West Papua in February 2007. Papua province has capital city of Jayapura and West Papua is Manokwari. Since Government made to be two provinces, it makes more development of business and economy while for our cultures and community life nothing changed. Papua and West Papua is a last frontier for travel among unique cultures that have had a little influenced by western people. The indigenous people of Irian Jaya are Melanesians with black skins and curly hair. They generally have a root crop subsistence agriculture based on sweet potatoes and taro, while people in the lowlands and swamps obtain their starch from sago palm which gives an extremely generous yield for remarkably little effort. While many other people of the world were still hunter and gatherers, local people had begun to garden. After fairly recently, many of the people lived within simple stone age culture wearing little clothing and decorating their bodies with paintings, shells, pig tusks, feathers and skins. Some places and tribes are interest to visiting in highland and lowland.

To access Papua, there are some daily airlines companies fly from Jakarta to Jayapura with transit at Sulawesi and Bali, while for internal flight between regencies of Papua, some airlines operated here and specially to get remote places can be served by Missionary flight and some small private companies, beside airlines also passengers ship available here.
