Traditional Village of Beno
There is one main reason to visit this town and strangely it is not the smoking volcano that dominates the skyline behind the city, or the new volcano that is being formed on the outskirts or even the relaxing hot springs located close by. And it certainly isn’t the functional, bleak, dusty town that one steps down from the bus into that draws tourists in. It is something much more unique. In the area surrounding Bajawa are green valleys, forests and towering volcanoes and within this dramatic scenery can be found the traditional villages of the Nago and Wogo people who continue to practise animistic beliefs (mingled with Christianity).
