We took a flight using a mission airline — this was our aircraft with 4 seats (it had to fly twice to carry all of our group). In front of the aircraft, there is our travel agent Christoph Kadlubski.

Highland Trekking

Starting and ending in Wamena, we did a 5 day highland trekking.

The Tour in Detail


Ibiroma was the first station in our trek.

        Ibiroma to Wuserem

On the second day, we went from Ibiroma down the slope, crossed the Baliem, over a mountain, crossed a tributary of the Baliem, went up and reached Wuserem.


Originally, we did not want to stay the night in Wuserem. But that day, there was a wedding in this village, and we were invited to participate.
