Explore the jungle of Baliem Valley in this short trekking trip 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. Get ready for an exciting adventure into wilderness!
