Itinerary

Day 1ARRIVAL MERAUKE - FLIGNT TO KEPI (L,D)

Arrival with an early morning flight in Merauke. In Merauke we will pick you up and continue by small airplane to Kepi. This flight is estimated to depart around 10.00 AM (subject to change). We will fly mainly over swamp area over lowland forests and after a 45 minutes flight we can see the small town of Kepi below us. Upon arrival in Kepi we will check in to our hotel. It is the best hotel in town. In Kepi we will buy our last food supplies for our adventure into the Korowai territories.

Day 2KEPI - YANIRUMA (B,L,D)

Very early departure from Kepi to Kali Tiga. We will use a small speedboat that can carry a maximum of 4 people and that is flexible and light enough to manoeuvre through the challenging swamp areas and rivers. From Kali Tiga we will continue to Senggo. Here we will have a short break and lunch. We continue to Basman. If the river tide is low, we will have to overnight in Basman and continue to Yaniruma the next day. If the river tide is high, we will continue by small local long boat to Yaniruma today and overnight in one of the local tree house camps of the Korowai tribes. In Yaniruma we will be able to see high tree houses.

The trip of today will be tired and long, but the scenery rewarding. Along the way from Kepi to Yaniruma we will have the chance to see the local people with their local daily activities such as fishing and we will pass exotic swamp sugar canes.

Day 3TREE HOUSES (B,L,D)

From Yaniruma we go back to Basman and from here we will trek to Mu village which takes approx. 3 hours. The trek is through lowland forest and swampy terrains. We will visit Janger village and overnight in a jungle camp near the tree houses of the Korowai Tribes. Here we will join and learn the local life style of the Korowai Tribes, that still live very traditional and are fully dependent on the forest. They did not know about a world beyond them, until 1970.
