Let's go to Mount Carstensz

(4,884 meters) Oceania

More info about Australia y Oceanía Expeditions Tours: Karstensz Pyramid (4884 m) or simply Karstensz. This is the highest peak on the island of New Guinea, which, according to many, belongs to the mainland of Australia. The western part of the island is part of Indonesia and is officially called Irian Jaya. The expedition to Carstensz is one of our emblematic routes. The Indonesians came up with a new name for this peak, Puncak Jaya Puncak Jaya (Victory Peak). Traditionally, it is named after the Dutch navigator Jan Carstensz. He was the first to report the existence of snow-capped mountains in this equatorial region. His trip took place in 1623. And then no one in Europe believed his report. Due to the current warming, the glaciers in the summit area only have a maximum of 10 years left to live.

Highlights and hidden gems


Standing at 16,024′/4,884m, the Carstensz Pyramid is the tallest peak in Oceania. Rising out of the remote jungle of Papua New Guinea, it is often regarded as the most exotic of the 7 Summits. This steep limestone peak is the only Seven Summits that involves rock climbing, making it a unique experience for Seven Summiteers and adventure seekers alike.

Our journey to the summit of the tallest peak in Oceania starts in Bali. After arriving in Indonesia, we’ll spend the first day organizing gear and resting from the long day of travel. From Bali, we’ll take a flight to the city of Timika on the Island of Western Papua. After arriving in Timika, we’ll re-pack and make sure that we are all dialed in for the coming expedition.

Weather permitting, we’ll take a helicopter to the Carstensz base camp the following morning. Upon arriving in the Yellow Valley, we’ll put up base camp and settle in. This will also be the first of our two day acclimatization period as we prepare for our summit bid.

Trip overview:

Timika – Yellow Valley – Carstensz Peak – Yellow Valley – Timika

Why go there?
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
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.

We as a local company and connoisseurs of tours have departures on different dates. The best thing to do is to join a travel group to take care of your budget, and of course you can join our groups, but on trips like mountaineering we recommend going in small groups. To join a group, ask us for the dates and we will send you the necessary information to be able to join any of our trips.

Why go in a private trip: For trips whether trekking or high mountains, going privately is the most recommended option, but the costs are more expensive. So, if one joins a group, the prices will be more reasonable. In the mountains, the only disadvantage is if you are in a wall with another partner and if one of the participants gets tired or gets sick. In this case, you have to abort or cancel the summit and return together. For more information, contact us. We can schedule a call via WhatsApp to clarify all your questions.

In a mountain, for example, if 3 people go and one of the participants falls ill on the route, for security reasons they have to cancel or abort the summit or return all together. The same in a technical mountain if the climbing partner gets sick they all have to return, for these reasons sometimes it is better to go private only because for a single person the costs are more expensive for the same reason that the trip would already be private .

For more information please contact us. For calls or inquiries to this number: +51 943 081 066

About the meteorological conditions of the climate, we try to organize the trips of each tour in the best season to have the best views and enjoy the selected trip but sometimes even is good season we can have bad weather, in this case on hiking or treks trips The complications are minimal, but when this happens during high-altitude climbing expeditions, the complications can become very difficult, that is why the bosses or leaders of the local guides must always make the most correct decision for the safety of our passengers, so we always recommend listening to the best advice from the local guide assigned for each tour. If you have any other questions please contact us. For calls or inquiries to this number: +51 943 081 066
