Trip overview

Timika - Yellow Valley - Carstensz Peak - Yellow Valley - Timika

We now offer to fly to Carstensz Pyramid BC by helicopter! 

Carstensz Pyramid (sometimes called Puncak Jaya) is a mountain in the Sudirman Range, the western part of the central highlands of Papua province, Indonesia. With an of altitude 4,884 metres above sea level, Carstensz Pyramid is the highest mountain in Indonesia, the highest on the island of New Guinea, the highest of Oceania (Australia).

Carstens Pyramid is probably technically the most difficult climb of all "7 Summits”. However, it is perfectly doable for real mountain climbers with at least basic rock climbing skills. The standard route is nearly straight up through the north face and then continues along the summit ridge, which is all hard rock surface.

The sharp limestone rocks offer pleasant climbing at nearly 4900m/16k feet altitude near the equator! The most difficult places are equipped with fixed ropes and the largest 'gap' in the summit ridge is crossed using the famous Tyrolean Traverse.

Despite the nearby large goldmine, the area is highly inaccessible to climbers and the general public, requiring a helicopter flight to Basecamp or alternatively (when it is safe) a 100-km hike, which usually takes about four or five days each way.

The island also offers a rare opportunity to visit the Stone Age, as the traditional way of life for most inhabitants of the island hasn't changed much over the past millennia.
