Maximus Tipagau



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.
