Explore the jungle of Baliem Valley and meet the Dani tribe that remained unknown from the outside world until around 1930s in this short expedition into one of the last wild extensions in the world. Baliem Valley territory is very attractive with its wonderful untouched nature, but it requires a detailed planning for your visit. The valley is cool especially at night, but the “king” of noon can burn. It is dominated by the steep Sudirman mountain range. In the morning, mist and clouds often hide the higher coasts which creates a mystical environment. You will be able to enjoy this place with daily trekking and return to the hotel at night. Suitable program for those who want the experience without having to sleep in sleeping bags. Get ready for an exciting adventure into wilderness!
