CartenzPyramid, and Everest BC trek,
Here are the details I received from Adventure Indonesia on the Cartenz trip which seems very reasonable price wise:
Thank you for contacting Adventure Indonesia regarding your inquiry of the Carstensz Pyramid information.
Mt. Carstensz Pyramid (4,884 M) is located in Irian Jaya/West Papua Island.
It had been closed for several years due to local political reason and and
just re-opened on 1997.
We have been running these expeditions for many times until today, where all the expeditions operate directly from us (NOT by third party) through our own Operational Branch Office in Jayapura with involvement of local people.
By operating directly the expedition from us, we sure we could provide you the most competitive cost, updated information, and control directly the safety and quality of the expedition itself.
Since the year of 2000 until today, Adventure Indonesia is the only company that could operate, get the authorised permits and successfully organise climb Carstensz Pyramid.
Enclosed below please find all the details of the expedition to Carstensz Pyramid such as day to day program (September 2001 expedition which will take place on September 9th - 22nd), expedition cost, and other practical information.
Regarding your question on special rate for student:
The expedition cost for 02 people of you is USD 3,800 (based on 02 people travelling together and joining on our international team expedition).
As described on the EXCLUSION of the expedition cost below the above expedition cost is EXCLUDE: Meals during trekking and climbing.
We suggest you to bring your own food during trekking and climbing.
If you agree and confirm to join in on our international team expedition, please keep the expedition cost we charged you above CONFIDENTIAL and please don't tell to the other participants when you meet them in Jakarta and during the expedition, since we charged them USD 4,500 / PERSON for joining into our international expedition.
Here is our international departure dates for 2001 on Carstensz Pyramid as follows:
* SEPTEMBER 09 - 22, 2001 (3 PEOPLE SIGNED UP).
* OCTOBER 07 - 18, 2001 (5 PEOPLE SIGNED UP).
* NOVEMBER 4 - 15, 2001 (1 PEOPLE SIGNED UP).
The International team expedition means that the participants consist of climbers from different countries. We require for the International team with minimum 04 people on the team which means the expedition could not run if the members less than 04 people, Otherwise we have to requote again the expedition cost based on the fix/final number of participant.
