Getting there

Carstensz Pyramid, is in a remote part of Indonesia.  There are no roads to base camp and the hike in takes 6 to 8 days.  The mountain is located in dense jungle, surrounded by primitive native tribes near the world's largest gold mine.  The area is poorly mapped, and the Indonesia government requires lots of permits which are costly and hard to obtain.  Periodically, the mountain is  closed to all outsiders.  The last time it was closed was from 1995 to 2005.  For this adventure Dan and Laura used an outfitter Adventure Indonesia.
