Pogapa is a village with a stunning view located in the area of Lorentz National Park in
Intan Jaya, a regency of Papua. Moni tribe is the occupants of this village. They live in
harmony with nature and are blessed with fertile soil. They plant taro, which is their
main source of food and Arabica coffee which they manage traditionally. Here, you can
find the salty river (a river in the mountains!) and see how Moni people process it traditionally to
fulfill their daily need of salt.
This village is the starting point to trek other villages around with fantastic view around
them. The only transportation means to reach Pogapa from Timika is by small plane
which takes around 45 minutes. Trekking Pogapa and other villages around gives you
the opportunity to see how local people live and do their activities in a remote area in
highest altitude of Papua. Besides, you will enjoy the natural beauty of view of the
mountains and valleys along the trekking route.
