Usually seen on a day trip from Goroka, Asaro is well-known for the eerie mud masks of the local tribe. Be forewarned that the tribal ceremony performed for tourists is...well, touristy, and typically lasts no more than 10 minutes. Mud masks made by the tribe are usually available for sale in the market near the Bird of Paradise Hotel in Goroka. 260 mi/420 km northwest of Port Moresby.
