Visit the Chimbu tribe

Papua New Guinea

These mysterious tribesmen inhabit the Chimbu Province situated in the Central Highlands of Papua New Guinea. The most fascinating thing about them is perhaps their skeletal paints and their dances during their cultural festivals.

There is still so little known about the Chimbu tribe even though their first contact with the western world was in 1934. They initially painted themselves to psychologically create fear in their enemies but now they do it for celebratory purposes.
