Carstensz Pyramid- Oceania’s highest peak and island mountain in the world

Mostpoint mountaineering challenge Carstensz Pyramid, also known as Mount Carstensz or Jaya (Puncak Jaya in Indonesian), is situated in a region hit by earthquakes and tsunamis, is with its 4,884 m /16,023 ft the highest island mountain in the world, Oceania, New Guinea and Indonesia. It also receives the names of Nemangkawi, Carstensz Toppen, Gunung Sukarno and ngga Pulu. Some claim that Mount Wilhelm (Enduwa Kombuglu in Kuman, Papuan language) (4,509 m / 14,793 ft) is the highest in Oceania, considering Indonesia as part of Asia. An open topic for discussion. The Carstensz was first conquered in 1962. Located in the middle range of Jayawijaya, in the middle of the jungle, it requires a high training in rock climbing. Despite its proximity to the Ecuador, several glaciers nest on its slopes. Its summit is ice-free due to the slope but is surrounded by very sharp rock. It forms part of the list 7 Summits - 7 continents as one of the toughest peaks, as it is in an inaccessible area (from the nearest airport (Timika) you have to walk 60 miles to the base camp, located at 4,050 m / 13,290 ft) . The most common route to undertake this climb is the north face, longitudinally along the edge of the summit.

What else is there
Each expedition to one of the mountains in the serie "7 summits 7 continents" involves not only the challenge of conquering the summit, but the adventure of discovering their enclaves, people in their surroundings with their customs. This Mostpoint is a clear example of this, as it is the most exotic of those selected peaks in the world. Surely you'll come to Timika via Jakarta. In the Indonesian capital do not miss the fantastic panoramic views of the city from the Skye bar Menara BCA Tower (the tallest building in the city), the last mangrove of the City (Muara Angke) and its museums and temples, that help you to learn more about the Indonesian culture.
