Flying is the most recommended way to get here. The nearest airport town to Carstensz is Timika (TIM) in Papua – Indonesia. Garuda Indonesia operates only one direct flight to Timika on daily basis from Bali (DPS). Our expeditions are typically start from Timika. To get here, you first fly to Bali – Indonesia, then take a domestic flight to Timika.
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.
