- Payment: Final payment should be paid by bank transfer at least 45 days before the beginning of the tour

CANCELLATION OF THE EXPEDITION: 

7 summits RESERVES THE RIGHTS to CANCEL the expedition prior to departure due to the political reason or insecure situation in Irian Jaya, either because of political pressure or because we ourselves think it is unsafe to go.

  • We will refund the paid amounts if we have to cancel the expedition before your arrival in Jakarta 

  • BUT if we must cancel the expedition after your arrival at Jakarta or Timika due to the above reason, there will be 25% of the expedition cost forfeited. (The full payment is not refunded in this such condition as we already spent $ arranging permits, providing porters, paying deposit of charter plane/helicopter, and other mostly non or partially refundable things that need to be paid in advance)

  • There will be no refund if a member leaves a trip for any reason either voluntarily or involuntarily after the trip has begun. No refund will be made for any services not utilized.

II: Route changes, permits, guides:

 

ROUTE CHANGES OR CHANGE OF ITINERARY 

Every effort will be made to adhere to the original planned itinerary, however it must be realized that with this type of adventurous trip changes to the itinerary may occur for which 7summits accepts no responsibilities, however caused. Circumstances may arise where we are forced to alter the duration of the expedition.

7summits has the right for any reason to change the date of departure, ITINERARY and ROUTE of the expedition which can cause postponement or delay (either in relation to departure or to the duration of the expeditions).

 

ROUTES TO APPROACH THE BASE CAMP 

There are several routes to approach the Carstensz Base camp. With consideration of the safety of the clients and the success of the expedition itself, 7summits has rights to determine the route to approach the Base Camp in each expedition.

 

SIGHTSEEING & CULTURAL TRIPS 

Our main goal is to put you safely on the top of Carstensz Pyramid, NOT to give you an experience on local culture during trek and climb. If you are looking for the unique tribal culture of Irian Jaya, we strongly suggest you to join with an other adventure trip to the Baliem Valley after the expedition is finished.

The trip is designed to focus ONLY on climbing Carstensz Pyramid and in the event of changing the route after the expedition has started, there will be no refund of  the expedition cost (in the whole or in part).

The expedition cost is quoted as a package. No partial REFUNDS or CREDIT will be given for services not used and participants can not claim any additional expenses, inconvenience and loss of time due to change, postponement or delay.

 

GUIDE RESPONSIBILITY 

Our guides have rights to cancel the expedition or make changes on itinerary if the situation is NOT allowed due to above causes or due to the changes on flight schedules made by the flight companies.

In carrying out the expedition, even as there are several routes to reach the peak of Carstensz Pyramid available, our guides) only have the obligation to take all the climbers to reach the summit of Carstensz through the normal route. All the activities beyond the climbing or beyond the route which has been determined, is strictly prohibited. If you insist to do other activities or take other routes which have been determined, all the consequences and results are on your personal responsibility.

 

PERMITS & FILMING:

The permits we arrange for you are ONLY for climbing, NOT for filming/documentary activities beyond the climbing itself. For filming/documentary activities with heavy filming equipment and crews, you should have a SPECIAL FILMING PERMIT.

Otherwise, we could get sanctions from the local authorities which could cause problems to the climbing expedition itself and to 7summits in carrying out these expeditions.

 

 

III: Passport, Visa, Insurance.

 

- Passport and visa: All members must be in possession of a valid passport and the required visa. 7summits.com and it's local agents will advise and assist, but it is client's responsibility to provide the correct documents.

- Insurance: Members must be protected by insurance that covers cancellation, accident (injury or death), health, emergency evacuation, mountaineering and loss of or damage to baggage and personal effects.
