Isolation in Papua’s rural areas caused by the lack of
means of transport that gives to various problems in
education, health, and welfare of community led to the
idea of establishing a limited liability corporation with
the name PT Adventure Carstensz. Officially
inaugurated by the notary Sri Widodo S.H (Number 24-
October 22, 2008), PT. Adventure Carstensz was
established as manifestation of the deep desire to bring
forward advancement and welfare of and for Papuans,
as a part of the Republic of Indonesia. The company is
engaged in eco-cultural tourism that actively
emphasizes the unique characteristic of Papuan
cultures along with the florabundance of its nature.
Quality and service excellences are key factors in our
industry. Added with the professional ability of human
resources, we always hold them as priorities. We aim to
be great companion and a greeting inspiration.
Papua’s tropical wilderness welcomes your climbing to
the Carstensz Pyramid’s peak. Winding hills, rugged
tracks, and rushing rivers should be conquered. Local
people greet in their genuine smile and soon become
new friends, letting you redefine your climbing
experience. It worths the fatigue over a long journey.
The snow is waiting up there. A reward for those who
dare to beat the challenge. A paradise for the
Carstensz Pyramid is the highest summit in Indonesia,
in Asia and Oceania, and the seventh of the world’s
highest summits. It is called Carstensz Summit among
Indonesian people. The name ‘Carstensz’ was picked
after the name of its discoverer, Jan Carstenszoon, an
adventurer being commissioned by VOC for leading an
expedition to south-coastal of New Guinea.
Located in the Jayawijaya Mountains, in the central
Papua of Indonesia, Carstensz Pyramid is 4.884 meters
at height. Iceberg made from snow precipitation
covering the peak as it becomes the only snowy peak in
Indonesia, a tropical country in Southeast Asia. In
Indonesia, we call it “eternal snow’ because it remains
snowy in all seasons
The journey of PT Adventure Carstensz as a world tour operator for ecotourism and travel throughout the Carstensz Pyramid in Papua cannot be separated from the role of Maximus Tipagau. Since 2008, Maximus established Adventure Carstensz, a tourism company based in Papua.
He believes that companies engaged in tourism will bring prosperity to the people of Papua. However, starting from 2010, Maximus introduced Papua travel in Internationale Tourismus-Bourse (ITB) Berlin and World Travel Market (WTM) in London. In 2016, Adventure Carstensz continues to expand its network to Spain and Austria through the event FITUR Madrid and Ferien Messe in Austria.
Some media noted, Maximus was the first person from Papua who promotes Carstensz Pyramid. Maximus has also been a speaker at several national and international events in Europe. Men born in 1983 also have produced a book entitled “Guide to Carstensz Pyramid in West Papua” in 2015. Maximus did not only focus on the tourism business. These hard-working men established Somatua Foundation aimed to build independence, skills and equity in education and health. Maximus, through Somatua Foundation, is also actively involved in Doctor Share, flying doctors service to isolated areas.
