    Capital of the subdivision of Upper-Digul, Tanah Merah is located more than three hundred miles inland on the Digul River. This artery of South New Guinea is navigable for even large coasters up to this town. Tanah Merah is linked by a regular bi-weekly air service with Merauke.
    A housebuilding program was recently started in order to furnish accommodation to the growing community.
