The Sepik region is a must-see for all travel agencies, above all the Middle Sepik, or the Middle Sepik.
This region, watered by the Sepik River is very interesting for the lifestyle and culture of its inhabitants, that you mimic the crocodile skin with escarificicaciones in your own skin, some of them appear to not be able to control the infection causing these cuts.
The most common way of visiting the middle region of the Sepik is to travel to Wewak and from there travel on public transport (If you like adventure) until Pagwi, a jetty into the Sepik River, where can you purchase some supplies and overnight, Although the rooms are usually always full.
There are a few from Wewak to Pagwi 7 hours of trip approximately, Depending on the State of the road and the number of betel nut driver taken. In my case I travelled by night and was lucky to share the cab with the driver. He wore a t-shirt that said : "safe driving" and was since betel nut until the same eyebrows. I don't know how I got healthy and except with that crazy driver, Curiously it was Mt.Hagen. Halfway through the trip we stopped in a very interesting night market. There were many curious surprised to see tourists with public transport, most travel agency.
It is lifestyle of this area of PNG is very authentic and they take advantage of the River to scroll, bathing,… If you decide to take a dip attempts have where to hold you, the current is very strong. Being so close to fresh water also has its disadvantages and those are mosquitoes, a genuine plague. I advise you to wear some pants that cover the legs and water purification tablets, the conditions are basic, I recommend buying some provisions in Pagwi.
I hope you enjoy the Sepik and its inhabitants ! . You can see all the images to full screen in the section of Photographs.
