Like a larger and wilder version of the Lakekamu Basin, Papua’s Mamberamo is an eight million hectare wilderness access only by mission bushplane. Surrounded by mountains, the Mamberamo is home to crocodiles, wallabies, tree kangaroos, and cassowaries, and a whole suite of forest-dwelling people who rarely receive visitors.

Only for the most adventurous and hardy jungle trekkers. One also needs a surat jalan from the police in Jayapura, the logical jumping off place for this adventure.
