Mountain Trip Carstensz Climbing Team Reporting from Timika!
Long night last night. Leaving Bali at 1.30am for the 4 hour flight to Timika, West Papua. That’s all the way across Indonesia. Arrived here just after sunrise this morning. Staying at a fantastic new hotel in town, the Ossa de Villa. Big day going over equipment, schedules, permits, then a nice lunch at the Rimba Papua Hotel. Hot and sunny today so confidence is high for tomorrow’s helicopter flights to base camp. Planning 2 flights at 6 and 7 am tomorrow.
The team is excited to be one step closer to Carstensz Pyramid!
Will update everyone tomorrow.
