There are not many tribes around the world that are more mysterious than the Korowai, who are found in south eastern Papua, Indonesian New Guinea.
They live in remote and densely forested areas and often build towering tree houses on the forest canopies. In effect, they live the high life, literally.
They were reportedly unaware that other people existed on earth until the 1970s. Given the remote locations they live in, this is hardly surprising.

The tribe is thought to number only about 3,000. Their towering tree houses are believed to be a way to avoid capture from rival clans during raids.
There have been suggestions that the Korowai are cannibalistic. However, anthropologists believe this is an exaggeration.
Their first documented contact with the outside world was in 1974.
