Base Camp C

Base Camp C was established one and a half hour’s walk beyond the village of Kanikeh, in a shady clearing protected by giant bamboo. It was a magical setting. Between the tall, thick stems of bamboo and other rainforest trees there were fantastic vistas of Gunung Binaia which at times was hidden in soft, swirling cloud. Within a short distance of camp there was also a gentle cool, stream with a secluded pool where we bathed. The camp’s pit toilets were established well away from the stream, which provided drinking water for the expedition and the village of Kanikeh. Read more.
