This is a must do experience. Would highly recommend it to anybody. We preferred the hike in and hike out experience. Some in our group opted to take the helicopter out. Whatever way you can, give it a whirl.

Thank you for your answer. I already get the permit for October 2019. What I meant is how busy is it going to be? How many spots are allocated to camp/night by the tribe?
