Carstensz Pyramid Expedition Cancellation/Refund Policy

Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

  • Each deposit and balance payment is non-refundable.
  • All balances are due 120 days prior to departure date unless otherwise specified.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

In brief, Trip Cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

Carstenz was a lot more rewarding and fun then I had expected. Ben Jones did a great job with us. He is so kind, so patient, so easy to hang out with. I really liked him as a guide and as a person, he is **wonderful**.
