HomeBlogs Ilaga Ilaga is one of the main towns in the western highlands, and is best
known as the starting point of the hike up Puncak Jaya. The broad valley
around here is home to both the Lani, and the more colorful Amungme
tribe. Partly to stop unauthorized climbs and partly because the OPM
guerillas operate in this region, it is generally closed to travellers.
