Enga Province

ONE LANGUAGE, ONE PEOPLE

Image

You’ll be impressed by Papua New Guinea’s highest province filled with fast flowing rivers, spectacular waterfalls, high valleys and mountain passes.

Dominated by only one language, many people in Enga do not need to speak English or Tok Pisin, so use a guide to ensure a smooth trip. From the main town of Wabag, visit nearby high-altitude lakes, discover the Laiagam salt ponds, and tackle the short 15-minute hike to the thundering Yuo Falls.

MUST SEE

  • Take a stroll through the collection of native orchids and rhododendrons on display at the Laiagam Botanical Gardens.
  • Learn all about our Engan customs at the Taekanda Cultural Centre.
  • Witness a ‘Tee’ ceremony, a grand and public exchange of gifts between clans or tribes.

HOW TO GET THERE

Domestic flights arrive directly into the Wapenamanda Airport weekly from Port Moresby. Travel by private car, PMV bus or truck from Mt Hagen on the highlands Highway.
