Shortest Airstrips in Papua, Indonesia to try!

I’m sitting at WT89 (Mbugulo) in the Quest Kodiak viewing the Nearest Airports function of the G1000. Scrolling through all the airstrips in range I can see which have the shortest runways. Here they are as I came across them. I intend to try all of them. I can’t believe that WA0D, Dadou, is only 970ft long! That is probably way to short for the Kodiak although the length is not necessarily the deciding factor on the possibility of landing. If there are no trees at the threshold and the runway slopes sharply, I can land on a much smaller strip.
