2012 Mt Hagen Show Weekender (Tour Code: SH-W12)

The 2012 Mt Hagen Show Weekender package includes two days of cultural extravaganzas in Mt Hagen plus village discovery tour of Western Highlands.

Mt Hagen Show is one of the most extraordinary sights ever witnessed by international travelers. Beneath an intense tropical sun and surrounded by jungle-clad mountains, over 2,000 tribesmen and women parade onto a sports field. Their bodies glistened with pig fat and their faces with red, black and yellow ochre. The man wear pig tusks through their noses and quills from the cassowary, a giant bird the size of an emu. They sport glittering head-dresses made from bird of paradise feathers, and round their waists they wear grass kilts, known somewhat cheekily in Papua New Guinea's Pidgin English as "arse-grass".
