Carstensz Pyramid Expedition by using a helicopter in and out is fast trip low cost and avoiding security situations and the usual losses (trekking access).

We have arranged expeditions with helicopters since 2008 until now. Helicopters are very helpful for all climbers, the price is very light or affordable and 100% of your expeditions are successful.

Helicopters are available in Timika and fly to the Yellow Valley of the base camp 4300m (below the Carstensz wall). Expeditions with helicopters are shorter and faster as well as low costs.

The type of helicopter to be used is B-3 with a cargo capacity of 350 kg (including passengers and luggage), maximum passengers 3 people.

With helicopter it is only 40 minutes to fly from Timika to Yellow Valley base camp 4300mdpl.

Flights to Carstensz Pyramid are available daily.

Shortly after midnight flight to Timika, Papua with Garuda Indonesia.

A 3-hour flight will bring us to Timika, a small but nevertheless important city. It is the supply point of the Grasberg Mine.
