So the expedition to  Carstensz seria-2 starts. We arrived at 8 people in Bali. Under the guidance of Lyudmila Korobeshko and Alexander Abramov. And then we met our group-1, which yesterday returned to Bali from Carstensz, under the leadership of Artem Rostovtsev. We are resting and remembering what happened. Group members were not allowed to hike through the jungle, as the military said that in the jungle is unsafe. And so they flew in a helicopter. And rightly so. As somebody said, in the area of Carstensz yesterday there were shot a car with police from machine guns. Tonight we will fly to Timika. In the lair of the Papuans

Artem Rostovtsev, a guide of the 7 Summits Club:

 

Rainy greetings from Papua! We are again in Timika. In short, we flew to Sugapa, and then are unable to overcome obstacles in the form of representatives of the tribe of Moni on the way to the jungle. Some time groups of tourists weren't there, and, perhaps, some time, still will not. We spent the night in a police station  and in the morning were evacuated at the first opportunity. We'll go the other routes planned tomorrow to fly to the base camp under a Pyramid Carstenz by helicopter.

 

 

Negotiations, massive entry of Papuans in the police station, talks, again talks...
