I was on expeditions with ADVENTURE INDONESIA twice, first time I went by the jungle and successful I reached on the summit and this time by helicopter and also I have reached on the summit. So I can tell that this company has very good service and experience for this expeditions, in my opinion is the best company. They have very good staff and guides. If you want to reach on the summit Carstensz Pyramid choose this company. I recommend this company.

Seven Summits Completed, on Second Time Seven Summits Campaign for Speed Record
I am very grateful for Ferdinand, Carol, Meds, Poxy & Joshua and all the other members who helped us during the trip for a successful summit.
The Carstensz Pyramid helicopter expedition is notoriously known for logistical issues however I didn't experience any of that which took a huge stress of my shoulders. Everything seemed to go smoothly and seemed like we had plan Bs in place. The summit push happened on the morning we arrived at Base Camp, our team felt strong and it was great to get to the top despite the weather closing in. Very thankful to our guides for believing us that we could reach the summit and also for the assistance getting us off the mountain safely. I'm also grateful for guide Proxy for letting me go ahead, I enjoyed a fantastic climb mostly on my own. Also for helping me through those gaps when I needed the encouragement.
The only thing I would change in the entire itinerary is to have the after summit Bali tour as optional; I felt worn out after the climb and spending the entire day on the road in the minibus checking out 'tourist attractions' wasn't very nice. Instead perhaps it could be either a half day tour (vulcanos + rice field enough) or arrange the team to spend half a day on a nice quiet beach to relax. This is my personal opinion.
From arrival to good-bye I felt I was looked after and treated by friends. The warm welcome and hospitality of the Adventure Indonesia crew is exceptional and would highly recommend to trek, climb, explore with them.
Love from a sunny and surprisingly warm London,
