OLD AND NEW WAYS LIVING CURIOUSLY TOGETHER
The capital city, Mt Hagen, is a bustling commercial centre where wealth from coffee and tea plantations has brought rapid change to traditional lifestyle. If you want to visit the last frontier of Papua New Guinea this is it. Taste the sweetest strawberries at Rondon Ridge, attend one of the regular cultural festivals held throughout the province and don’t miss the kaleidoscope of colours on view at the Saturday markets.
HOW TO GET THERE
Domestic flights arrive directly into the Mt Hagen Airport from Port Moresby. From the airport it's a 30-minute stretch by taxi ride to the city centre. Your hotel will provide airport transfers for your convenience. The Okuk (Highlands) Highway connects Mt Hagen to Goroka and other Highlands centres.
