If you are thinking about climbing Carstensz Pyramid using a local guiding company, I suggest you do not use the company below. He charged me and 13 others US$8,000 each and then left us in Timika. He final email to me is below along with his contacted details. Unsurprisingly he has not refunded me, or indeed and has not answered any of my calls or emails since.
I hope you are not as unlucky me and the other 13 climbers he stole from. If you require any further dertails please email.
BTW, can anyone recommend a local guide?
