IMG guides Jason Edwards and Dan Zokaites report from Timika, Papua, Indonesia that the Carstensz team is all together and healthy, and that all their baggage has arrived. That’s the way we like to start a trip!
Jason reports that the weather is mixed, with clouds and some rain in the afternoons and evenings. This morning the team did a complete equipment check and got all packed and ready for the flight to the jungle airstrip at Sugapa village tomorrow morning. For the afternoon today, they are doing some shopping, eating, swimming in the hotel pool, and final packing.
Everyone is excited and ready to begin the jungle trek to the most elusive of the Seven Summits!
