25 Stunning Images From The Annual Goroka Festival

every year, more than 100 tribes gather for what would be the biggest festival of the year in Papua New Guinea, The Goroka Festival. In this special event you get to see the tribes wearing spectacular clothes and makeup singing and dancing for an entire weekend. It has been told that this tradition began when these tribes were defeated in a tribal ” payback ” raid and they color their faces with white mud to make themselves look more fierce. The festival attracts many tourists from around the world and the images below prove it is one of those things you just have to see to believe
