This is the Sepik chapter from Lonely Planet’s Papua New Guinea & Solomon Islands guidebook.
The Sepik is one of the great rivers of the world, flowing in serpentine fashion for 1126km through northern PNG. But it is more than just a river – it’s also a densely populated repository of complex cultures, dying languages and potent art.
