Carstensz Pyramid Expedition by Trekking Suanggama Route
Carstensz Pyramid Expedition by trekking can be reached through 2 routes namely Ugimba dan Suanggama. The advantage of this route is the climbers are able to be in touch with the villagers and their culture. At the same time, you can see the beauty of the nature. It is an absolutely great opportunity. However, the trekking trails usually take a long time, and climbers must be readi to face obstacles such as difficult climbing routes and social problems. We hire guides, porters, and team who have experience addressing this kind of issues. Yet, this package is offered based on the social conditions, because the security of climber is the most important concerned of our service.
