You will catch your breath at every turn on your journey through Enga...

MORE ABOUT ENGA


...with the seemingly endless spectacular scenery - a region with majestic mountains, sweeping valleys, fast flowing rivers and and thunderous waterfalls. Still relatively undiscovered by tourists, Enga offers a true adventure through pristine nature combined with fascinating traditional cultures. Enga Province, is the highest province in Papua New Guinea at over 2000 meters altitude. It covers an area of around 12,800 km2 and has a population of more than 200,000 people with the majority still existing in a traditional way of life. While all the other provinces in Papua New Guinea contain scores of different language groups, Enga is unique in that it is dominated by one language, called Enga, hence the name of the Province. Even so, there is still enormous diversity between and within the districts. There are two major rivers in Enga Province, the Laigap and the Lai. The Laigap is one of the main tributaries for the Fly River and the Lai is proudly referred to as the 'head' of the epic Sepik River by the Engan people. Enga is divided into 6 districts, Wabag, Kandep, Kompiam, Lagaip-Porgera and Wapenamanda. The capital of the province is Wabag Town. The main street of Wabag was originally an airstrip and an important center in the 1930's as the Highlands was being colonised. Today, Wabag is a rapidly growing town that sits on the Highlands Highway, the longest highway in Papua New Guinea, which connects the interior of the country to the coast. The other major centers in the province apart from Wabag include Wapenamanda, where the airport is located, Laiagam, which has a government and botanical research station and Porgera, where the Porgera gold mine is.

Be captivated by the skill and story-telling through Enga's unique sand paintings in the Take Anda Art Gallery.

MORE ABOUT SAND PAINTING


Enga's sand painting art is a contemporary art form that evolved out the workshop at the Take Anda in the late 1970s and early 80s. With a lack of medium such as oil colors, acrylics, canvas and materials, mediums that are readily available from the natural surroundings were used - different colored grains of sand and earth. The new art form caught on and has evolved into a distinctly Enga style. Artist's paint images depicting Enga's traditional stories and way of life. The sand painters train for years as apprentices and you will often see them in the workshop at the Take Anda Art Gallery, alongside the master sand painters who create works for sale and display in the gallery. Watching the sand paintaings being created is mesmerizing, as grains of sand come alive with colour and form through skillful placement on the board by artists.
