Silversea Luxury Cruises A Murik Lakes

Murik Lakes

The Murik Lakes are a cluster of salt and fresh-water lakes in the lower East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea. Lagoons, mangrove swamps and sandbanks are wedged between the Sepik to the south and the Bismarck Sea to the north. To reach the villages in this area it is essential to come by boat as there are hardly any roads through the extensive mangroves forests. Life in the Murik Lakes is centered on hunting, fishing and gardening with sago palm being an important food staple. View more

Small villages like Karau are proud to present visitors with a traditional sing-sing in which several groups sing and dance simultaneously. Haus Tambaran (men’s houses) indicate different groupings within the village and the locals make carvings and weave Sepik baskets, which are popular in all parts of Papua New Guinea.
