Carstensz Pyramid by Helicopter

We’ve designed this Carstensz Pyramid helicopter for you, particularly if you have a very limited time to climb the Carstensz Pyramid – Puncak Jaya 4884m. We can arrange helicopter transfer from Timika to the base camp of Yellow Valley, under the Carstensz wall. You can acclimatise yourself in the basecamp before ascending the Carstensz Pyramid. It takes around 10-12 hours to have a round trip from the basecamp to the top of Carstensz Pyramid.

To ease your international flight booking, we organise pick up and drop off service in Bali (DPS) airport. Please check our schedule of 2019-2020 Expeditions, too!
