“Interesting Mummy worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The Mummy of Jiwika is located in the village of Jimika. From Wamena, catch a bus to Pasar Baru Market (A2 bus) to catch the bus to Jimika (you can take the KL or WL bus). Tell the driver that you are going to the Mummy of Jiwika and he will stop. The ride is about 30 min. There is a clear sign on the side of the road as well. The walk from the road to the mummy is about 5 min. The mummy is located in a hut at the end. We had to pay 50KIDR per person to bring it out from the hut. The person in charge told us about the history of the mummy. We could take photos, but if we wanted other persons in the photos we had to pay 5K IDR per each person in the photo. Overall is definitely worth a trip
