I am trying to arrange a trip to the Goroka highlands festival in September of next year. Any help would be much appreciated in figuring out the best (namely least expensive) way to get there from Jayapura in Irian Jaya, Indonesia.
I believe there is a road from Jayapura across the border to Vanimo in PNG - is there any public transport that travels the route or how do people usually get there? And when I get there, is there a land route to Goroka or another budget alternative? If so, is it feasible to make the journey or am I on a wild goose chase...
Your help is much appreciated...
I'm planning on attending either the Mount Hagen show or the Goroka Show in Papua and would like to know which show is the largest and also can you walk down among the dancers, etc during the show or are you confined to a fenced area? Anyone know of cheap budget accomodations at either place? Thank you for your time, jackie
Planning to attend Goroka show on Sept. 16 - 19, 2004 but don't wish to stay in hotel. Looking for budget accommodation, staying with locals, etc. Any suggestions? Cheers, Luci
