Welcome to Crater Mountain Wildlife Management Area


The area encompasses 2700 sq km, ranging from lowland tropical rainforests on the Purari River to alpine grasses on the slopes of Crater Mountain. You can hike between the various villages, but it’s serious trekking. There are three villages (Haia, Herowana and Maimafu) with basic guesthouses (per person K30) that provide beds (bring your own sleeping bags) and kerosene stoves (bring your own food). The Research & Conservation Foundation Transit House in Goroka can radio each village and help organise guides and flight arrangements with one of the three charter airlines servicing the area.
