Trip Leader Kornelius Kembaren, from the Karo Batak tribe, has lived in West Papua (formerly Irian Jaya) since 1989. One of the most respected and experienced guides in West Papua, Kornelius is an expert on culture of the Asmat, Dani, Yali, Lani, Korowai, and Kombai tribes and spends roughly six months a year living in the jungle with the indigenous peoples of West Papua. The Korowai and Kombai people treat Kornelius as a son, and he is as home with them as he is in the capital city of Jayapura!
