Day 2 (18.09.2021) Goroka Festival
After breakfast depart for the showgrounds where the Goroka Festival will take place. The Goroka Show is an annual festival that has been taking place since the 50’s. This fantastic event presents the opportunity for visitors to witness different tribes from all over the country who gather to display their culture, song and dance in rich colourful costumes, headpieces and magnificently painted bodies.
Once the show winds down for the afternoon we visit Asaro Village. Witness the famous Asaro Mudmen present a cultural performance. The Asaro Mudmen are famous for wearing fierce looking masks, with their bodies covered in white mud which made them look like ghosts emerging from the morning mist, when attacking their rival tribes.
After the sing sing visit the “Mens Haus” and take a stroll through the village, mingling with the locals. Return to your accommodation and free time. Packed lunch provided to take to the show. (B,L,D)
