Q:
Is it possible to hike to the site of the Gremlin Special crash site?

A:
If you can obtain a Surat Jalan travel pass to the interior (from a police station near the Jayapura Airport), you could fly to Wamena. From there, you would have to connect to someone from that part of the valley who knows where to climb. I would recommend Tomas Wandik, who would do so for a fair price. Folks at the Baliem Valley Hotel should know how to get in touch with Tomas, I think (though I can’t guarantee it).
