We booked a jungle tour for four hours and made the walk down from the lakes to the city center. During this walk you can visit several traditional villages. Some are very touristic, but a few are no so touristic. Its more hard to get...More
As one of the main attractions in this area, we (two friends and myself) went to the village with some prior information taken out of a travelguide and the internet.
Renting a scooter from Bajawa is easy (~100 000/day) and you'll get there in about...More
We happened to visit the village when they were preparing for a wedding/feast which was quite an eye opener to see all the prep going on and the cooking. A sight not for the squeamish. We were left to our own devices to wonder around...More
There aren't that many attractions in Bajawa, so this has to be one of the stops. The majestic Mt Inerie towers over the village, creating a picturesque setting. Almost every home has a women weaving in the verandah, and urging you to buy a scarf.
I really liked Bena. Even if Tololela is less touristic, I think Bena is nicer.
I really enjoyed the walk from Bena to Tololela. Pass the parking in Bena and turn right and then cross the small river by turning left. There you see the...More

We ended up by accident in Luba traditional village, which is about 300m above Bena village. Luba is much smaller, however we enjoyed the authentic welcome by Petrus and his daughter Maxima. They invited us to sit with them and share coffee. We shared such...More

Bena and wae rebo are 2 traditional villages belong to different region. Bena is in Bajawa region and easy access from the main street. while Wae Rebo is more authentic in it's architecture and life style, one need to be physically fit to visit Wae Rebo as it will require around 2 hours hike through the forest pathway from the nearest village. I personally like Wae Rebo more than Bena.
