Would like to thank ADVENTURE INDONESIA team for organizing expedition to CARSTENSZ Pyramid. Everything was well prepared and executed. We climbed the summit in the smooth and secured way. Once more many thanks for help and support in our Adventure.
Best Regards, Magda & Michal Kowalski


My experience with Adventure Indonesia for my October 2007 trip was a pleasant surprise. Ferdinand kept a keen eye on the ultimate of logistical challenges required to pull-off this remote climb. All of the AI staff, drivers and hotel staff in Papua were very gorgeous and friendly. We had the destination of being the first today ascent and descent of CP and Adventure Indonesia Team did an incredible job of coordinating this tight schedule getting us up and down the mountain feeding us well. It was more of an adventure than I had imagined technically challenging climb in a dark misty austere land. Teramiraga! ( Robert Bryden Guthrie )

Thank you so much for ADVENTURE INDONESIA team's skill and expertise in organizing my climb of Carstensz Pyramid the 8th of my 8 summits. You guys are great!
(David Larson)

We had an excellent trip with ADVENTURE INDONESIA - The logistics worked like clockwork, (this is usually the most difficult thing to realize in Papua). All the staff were helpful and polite throughout the trip. Thank you ADVENTURE INDONESIA TEAM ( Victor Saunders)

Expedition Adventure Indonesia was very interesting and exciting! The porters and guides were attentive! Thanks to Ferdinand, that he persuaded me to join that team 16th October!
( Igor Prinzyuk )

Many thanks for this experience a fantastic logistical job made the summit happen for us in a short time frame. Experienced guides made the ascent / decent and also the slag in the base camp less difficult than this challenge would have been otherwise. All the best.

Thanks to Adventure Indonesia we had a great time in Papua and Cartensz... very well organized! Ferdinand and his team made sure we have a real adventure! ( Paul Niel )

Adventure Indonesia arranged the best exciting time efficient expedition to Carstenz Pyramid. Ferdinand was in charge of the ornaments which were timely and complete. Adventure Indonesia knows Indonesia thus there is not better resource for your adventures while in Indonesia please feel free to contact me if you need any information or references. ( Felix Eduardo Sanchez )

Initially with my trip paid and having to wait for the return call to climb I was concerned, but ADEVENTURE INDONESIA was true to their word. After the previous unforeseen delay, I returned to Indonesia and we complete the climb. All went well and I would say it was an exciting climb, that I would do again.(John Crellin)

Thank you very much for a wonderful expedition. Not only did you facilitate a complex approach but did so in record time. As with happen in 1962 the main difficulty is to get to the mountain let alone climb it this you did in exemplary fashion. On our first day at base-camp we climbed the second highest mountain in S/E Asia and on the second day the highest. Many thanks for a wonderful organization.(Kees 't Hooft)

You can give my email or number to anyone who's interested and I will give them very positive feedback about my experience with your company (Troy Aupperle)

We very hapy with the carstensz pyramid expedition, the planning, and the preparations you did with the conservative authorities on Irian Jaya that allowed us a smooth access to the mountain ( Olof Eric Sundstorm & Martin Isak )

I has climbing The Carstensz Pyramid on The 28th / 01 / 2007 With Adventure Indonesia and I recommended this operator for the good organisation - good operational - good guide and good cook. There are non problems with this organisation (MARMET Jaques)

La Expedicion Pyramide de Carstensx, na sido una experencia unica. El progarama es muy cenado, conto, extresante, pero debilo a las minimas opciones que has pora entor aqui, es logica. La montana es alucinate, la ruta esta instalada, con alqunos pasos tecnicos.Hemos leleo cumbe

My expedition to Carstensz Pyramid on November 2007 was about to end even before it could start. It was only thanks to the expertise and local knowledge of Ferdinand and his dedicated team of professionals that I could reach the elusive peak and become the first Ecuadorian to stand on top of the highest summit in Oceania. It was a great experience and I recommend without reservations Adventure Indonesia´s services to anyone wishing climb the Pyramid." My best wishess for 2008. Kind regards, Patricio Crausaz
