Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands travel guide

Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands - The Highlands (Chapter)

9th Edition Sep 2012

This is the Highlands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands guidebook.

When Europeans discovered PNG’s rugged interior in the 1930s, they stumbled into heavily cultivated valleys lined with saw-tooth mountains and home to a million-plus people. Today many aspects of traditional highland culture remain for visitors to experience.

  • scramble up PNG’s highest peak, Mt Wilhelm, in the predawn gloom to watch sunrise light up both the north and south coasts
  • maps
  • photograph the beautifully adorned performers at one of the Highland shows in Goroka or Mt Hagen
  • transport
  • chill out at the seldom-visited Lake Kutubu and visit local villages
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Eastern Highlands Province, Goroka, Simbu Province, Kundiawa, Mt Wilhelm, Walking to Madang, Western Highlands & Jiwaka, Provinces, Mt Hagen, Wahgi Valley, Enga Province, Wabag, Southern Highlands Province, Mendi, Lake Kutubu & Around, Hela Province and Tari.
