I would like to say a big thank you to Adventure Indonesia, especially to the guides (Poxi, Yosh, Meds & Abi), Carol and Ferdinand.
Thank you for all your help. I’m so sorry for all the troubles with my ticket. The whole trip was very well organized and professional.
Adventure Indonesia went beyond their responsibilities. The best company I climb with so far .
It was my pleasure to climb Carstensz with you. It was a fantastic experience.

Ferdinand: I want to thank you for all the gifts. Jim was kind enough to send them to us, once back in the US. We certainly didn’t expect them and are very appreciative of the thought, uniqueness and quality of the various items.
Thank you again for the great adventure and opportunity to work with your company and guides. Outstanding folks and a wonderful company. 
If you need any testimonials, do not hesitate to have any US prospect give me a call for a quick overview of the trip and what to expect. A great adventure.

This was an incredible experience – The most and unique and exotic of my seven summit adventures. The entire experience was more difficult than I expected even though I trained very-very hard for the climb. The trek in was a quite interesting in that we passed through multiple zones including jungle, then forest and finally mostly barren rock environment at base camp.

The guide (Poxi, Josh, Meds, Abi, and Lucky) were outstanding and took very good care of us. The meals that were prepared for us were nutritious, plentiful, and very tasty. They provided things for our meals that I haven’t even had at home (for example squid, escargot). The group gear provided was very good and provided excellent camping accommodations.

Being among the native tribe people was truly unique experience that I will never ever forget-especially watching the negotiations with local tribe leaders as we passed through their lands – It was a unique experience and a privilege to experience.

Summit day was incredibly satisfying – and the guides provides expert help in assuring that we all made it safely to the summit, but more importantly down safely.

The help provided by Mr. Ferdinand and Miss Carol was very much appreciated and instrumental to our success as they helped deal with problems getting to Bali prior to the start of the expedition.

All in all I would give my highest recommendation to Adventure Indonesia and their Carstensz Pyramid trek-in / trek-out expedition. This is the ONLY way to experience Carstensz Pyramid and Adventure Indonesia is the way to go!

Wow, Thank you for an incredible journey. I had such an amazing time. I have dreamed of going to Papua for a long time and this trek did not disappoint.

Adventure Indonesia has an amazing thing going. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite day or part… I loved the jungle (second day!) the thick moss covering everything was special. Also the mud!

Nothing be better than getting muddy and bloody. It is also great that we were able to associate with the porters. It made the trip seem much more real.

Thanks for negotiating the deal for the around and necklace. It’s great that we were able to spend a night it Sugapa and Timika. Awesome. I will be back.

Climb on brothers.
Cheers and thanks again!

Bouchra Baibanou / Ms (Morocco), First Moroccan summit Carstensz Pyramid


This trip/expedition has been one of the best of my life. It was a great adventure from beginning to end, with great people. It’s usually the most important factor; the people! The guides have been amazing all the way, and I admire their patience with clients, the local people, and nature. I realize the Carstensz Expedition requires a lot of patience and flexibility because of unexpected events. Considering the conditions I think everything worked very well. I like that we were expected to take care of ourselves and not be “baby sited”, like in American leadership expeditions. I also think it’s fantastic that we got new and single tents, and that there was great variation and different types of food, even though the vegetarian tofu was finished after two days. My only advice for future expeditions would be importance of proper gear. And that you take responsibility as a client to support yourself. Maybe an improved equipment list. But in total, I loved this expedition and the guides so much I’d do it again. And I would recommend others to travel with Adventure Indonesia.
