Last year I had the great pleasure on going on a Redfern Giant Nepenthes Tour it was one of the most stunning trips of my life. Stew is planing 4 expedition for this year and I can't stress enough how highly I recomend the tours.
Stewart has organised four Nepenthes expeditions to take place in 2013. These trips offer Nepenthes enthusiasts the chance to trek through steaming rainforests to reach remote mountain summits to observe, photograph and experience spectacular Nepenthes plants in the wild.
The expeditions will take place over June, July and December 2013. The objectives of each trip include the following:
Philippines Expedition to explore the spectacular summit of Sibuyan (ascended by a knife edge ridge) to the habitat of N. argentii and N. sibuyanensis, and to Mount Hamiguitan (home to the spectacular N. peltata, N. micramphora and N. hamiguitanensis), a lowland trip to see N. merrilliana, N. truncata and N. bellii, and a climb up Sultan Peak, to see the largest of all Nepenthes of the Philippines; N. palawanensis.
Sulawesi Expedition to see the spectacular N. hamata, N. eymae, N. maxima, N. nigra, N. tentaculata, N. tomoriana, N. glabrata and (hopefully) N. pitopangii, as well as the amazing indigenous Torajan cultures.
New Guinea Expedition to see N treubiana and spectacular ancient petroglyphs by canoe, giant highland Papuan N. ampullaria and N. insignis, huge N. neoguineensis populations, and N. mirabilis. Possibly with an additional add on of visiting the famous Baliem Valley – home to fascinating Papuan tribes and cultures.
