Korogo has an impressive haus tambaran with a pair of carved eagles at each end of the roof. Local myth tells of two young women who, while fishing, attracted the lascivious attentions of the Crocodile Spirit. The spirit caused a flood, forcing the girls from their homes and into his waiting jaws. One sister was eaten; the other captured and duly married. The union produced two eggs from which eagles, not crocodiles, hatched. Inside there are colourfully painted pillars and beams, garamut drums with river spirit carvings, ceremonial costumes and shell-studded long masks for sale.
There’s a pleasant two-hour walk inland to the village of Yamok, home to the Sowas tribe and two smaller haus tambarans; it's also famous for its hook cult figure carvings. You can also take a canoe to Palenqaui and walk from there (40 minutes).
In Korogo, James Kongon has a small guesthouse made of bush materials; meals are included. Korogo is 30 minutes by motorboat from Pagwi.
