Dear Benny,
Thank you so much for organizing a wonderful trekking trip for us in the Baliem Valley. The service by your team was friendly and well organized. We loved the beautiful mountains, rivers, and people of Papua and really appreciated the cultural experiences such as watching sweet potato cooking, seeing a mummy, participating in a traditional ceremony, and of course sleeping in huts. Thanks again for your help and services.

Best wishes,
Blake & Kerry [More . . ]
