Photographer's Note

Land transportation infrastructure in Papua highland has not been well developed; in fact, it almost does not exist. So, there are only two options of transportation mode for visiting villages at highland of Papua. Either you fly or walk. There are some airstrips in this area, for small, less than 10 seat aircrafts or another option is using a helicopter.

Besides passengers, the plane may also be loaded with food stuffs, construction materials, and even…. pigs! Don’t be surprised if everything will be more expensive here, due to high transportation cost. ‘Regular’ flight only available from Jayapura to Wamena, then from Wamena to other destinations at the highland should be chartered.
