Korowai treehouses (Papua/ Indonesia)

The Korowai are a people of southeastern Papua (i.e., the southeastern part of the western part of New Guinea).
The majority of their clans live in tree houses. They often have wars amongst themselves and one of the main reasons they live in trees is for self-protection.


  1. It's really impressive: I wouldn't have imagined a house could be build *that high* up a tree that thin.

  2. Those houses are amazing! Like the person said above, it's hard to believe such a thin tree could support such a large house.
