Once you reached Timika, you still need to take another flight to the basecamp. It’s either by helicopter directly to the Yellow Valley basecamp or by a small plane to the pioneer airport in Sugapa Village. From Sugapa, you can go trekking in the interior of Papua to reach the basecamp of Danau-Danau.
