Itinerary

Day 1The adventure begins - Arrival in Wamena

Arrival at Jayapura airport, then fly to Wamena, stay at hotel. Rest and Prepare for trekking, our team will be reporting your
permit and do the final checking. Take a good sleep.

Day 2Sogokmo and Yuarima

Today’s trek will be long, but pretty easy. Start from the hotel after breakfast, then transfer to Sogokmo
village, about 40 minutes drive to the south. Arrival in Sogokmo, then cross Mugi river, follow the trail of the Dani from
the riverside up to Hitugi and Yuarima. Both Hutigi and Yuarima lie on a higher altitude than Wamena. (Wamena is
about 1,600 m above sea level). All the way we will be passing through the hilly terrain of Dani home, on the left and the
right side are the Dani gardens with sweet potatoes and taro plants. Stay overnight at a local house in Yuarima. The walk
today is about 7 – 8 hours. Arrival late in the afternoon in Yuarima.

Day 3Yogosem and Kiroma

After breakfast, you will cross Mugi river and then climb to a higher altitude. Proceed to the border between the Dani and the Yali area. Yogosem and Kiroma are the closest Dani village to Yali area.
Stay at the local house in Kiroma, called honai.

Day 4Mount Siam

The trail is getting more strenuous. Leave the houses and the garden of the Dani. You will be passing through the highland forest dominated by trees and ferns. If you are lucky, you may meet the Yali peoples with their penis gourd and rattan hoop along the waist. In some parts of the trail, you will cross
some rivers, walk along the riverside and climb the hilly terrain. Most of the walk is heading uphill. In the evening, the temperature can be ice cold and the wind blows very hard.

Day 5Swele Hut

Another difficult walk, heading to Swele camp / some local call this Swele hut. There is a small hut on our destination
where the local hunter usually stay overnight in their hunting. Today we will pass a highland swamp where you will be able to see some water
birds. The walk will be more difficult as we have to deal with muddy and wet trail. There are also some
small rivers we have to cross. The temperature is very cool up there. Stay at the hunter camp site.

Day 6Yali forest - Solinggul

Today you will trek from the mountain down to Yali, passing through some dense forest with giant Pandanus trees which are used by the locals as food and building material. It’s a 7/8-hour long walk along the steep trail down to Solinggul, a village with about 30 – 40 traditional houses. There is a small church here. Peoples at Solinggul (most of them) still wear grass skirts and penis gourd. Stay at the local house in Solinggul.

Day 7Waniyok village - Pronggoli

Solinggul village perches on a small hill, overlooking another Yali village named Waniyok. We descend about 1 hour from
Solinggol to Waniyok, (many kids usually come with us till the end of the village). Along the way is the Yali garden with
taro and sweet potato plants. We will have some great chance to see the Yali with their koteka work in the garden.
Arrival at Waniyok, then have a look around the village and then proceed to Pronggoli. Pronggoli lies about 6 – 7 hours
from Waniyok. We will be passing some small rivers, Yali garden, and forests until Pronggoli. About 30 minutes before
Pronggoli, the trail will ascend after crossing Sule river. All the villages of Yali (Solinggol, Waniyok, and Pronggoli) lie on
the western side of Yali.

Day 8Return to Wamena- mount Elit

After a night in Pronggoli, we walk back to Wamena through a different route. The locals in Pronggoli built some ladders
(there were 6 ladders made of wood about 5 – 8 me length) on Mt. Elit wall to climb this mountain. The wall is very
slippery and steep. Our team has some ropes to assist people who are not strong enough to climb. The view along the
way is spectacular, while the wind blows quite strong. We will be crossing Mt. Elit slope in about 3 – 4 hours climb.
Proceed to Matik, another 3 hours walk, some muddy and wet trail.
Stay overnight at the tent.

Day 9Wongoll base camp and Kali Mulik river

Descend from Matik to Wonggol camp and Kali Mulik. The walk will take about 6 hours, still muddy and wet trail. There are also some rivers about 2 – 3 m wide we have
to cross. Stop for lunch at Kali Mulik riverside. Wonggol is a meeting point of 2 trails. The one to the left will take
you to Pronggoli and the one on the right will take you to Solinggul. From Kali Mugi, another 2 hours walk will
take us to Kiroma.

Day 10Hitugi Village

We walk along the same trail, much easier walk, descending from Kiroma to Yuarima. From Yuarima, the trail is quite flat till
Hitugi. We will walk for 7- 8 hours today. Stay at the local house in Hitugi.

Day 11Seinma and Sogokmo- Wamena

Last day walking, flat trail, about 4 – 5hours from Hitugi to Seinma. Passing through the Dani gardens and small
