River Of Life

Karawari river, East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea

The Karawari river is marked by abundant birdlife, impressive architecture of haus tambarans, beautiful stilt villages, the long canoes,misty dawns and spectacular sunsets that make this an unforgettable place. The Karawai river runs into the Korosameri and then into the Sepik. The Sepik itself, and it's tributaries is one of the most famous features of PNG, not just because of the fine art produced in the area but because it has captured the collective imagination of adventure travellers. It represents to outsiders something quintessentially primitive and an embodiment of the idea of a densely populated river region, home to isolated people.
