*** Important Notices, Terms and Conditions ***



I: Payment, Refund & Cancellation & No Shows and bank expenses:


Land tour cost

- Bank expenses: All bank (transfer) expenses will be paid by the client (also when refunding). Please make sure you arrange this with your local bank.


- Cancellation fees

  • For cancellation prior to 30 days before the departure date there will be a cancellation fee of €1500.

  • For cancellation between 15 and 30 days before the departure date there will be a cancellation fee of €3000.

  • For cancellation between 0 and 15 days before the departure date or no-show there will be a cancellation fee of €8850 (full price)


  • Before arrival: paid amounts will be refunded minus a non-refundable part of €1500. When alternative dates will be organized, this amount will be applied to a new Carstensz trip booking.

  • After arrival: part of the paid fee might be refunded, but this is not guaranteed as we are dependent on refund from many local contractors. So in principle the balance is non refundable unless agreed otherwise. The full advance payment is not refunded as we already spent $ arranging permits, providing porters, paying deposit of charter plane, 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 or if the trip has to be canceled or changed due to different reasons, including but not limited to: plane/crew problems, social/political unrest or permit problems. Unexpected changes might need additional costs, which will have to be paid by the client.

II: Route changes, permits, guides::



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 or even cancel it.





The trip is designed to climbing Carstensz Pyramid the classic way; in the event of changing the route before or 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.



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.



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.
