Koskala Gerupeng Lodge is a unique retreat nestled in the heart of Jiwaka, Papua New Guinea. This eco-friendly lodge offers guests the opportunity to experience the rich cultural heritage of the Sekaka tribe, who have lived in the region for centuries. The Sekaka tribe is renowned for its intricate carvings and vibrant traditional dress, which are on full display during their colorful festivals and ceremonies.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the Sekaka tribe is their connection to the Forest skull kids of Koskala. These children, who are said to have been born with skulls that are unusually elongated and flattened, are considered to be a sacred link between the tribe and the forest spirits. It is believed that they possess special powers and are able to communicate with the spirits to bring good fortune and protection to the village.
Guests at the Koskala Eco Lodge have the opportunity to learn about the traditions and customs of the Sekaka tribe and witness the unique practices associated with the Forest skull kids.
