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