As one of the Seven Summits, Carstensz Pyramid is a goal for many climbers in the world as an outstanding achievment for them. Anticlinal peak with an altitude about 4.884 meters, emerged from the bottom of deep sea millions of years ago due to collision of Pacific and Hindia-Australian plates. Form a highest point of Indonesia-Oceania in chain of Sudirman mountain ranges, covered with tropical glaciers located in the middle of the jungle in Papua Island, the second largest island on earth. Only a small snowy area left of hundreds kilometers in the massive of Middle Mountain-ranges with an old limestone rock divides that island.

Helicopters are the fastest alternative way to basecamp in the Carstensz area, cuting the long journey about 50 kilometers of trekking in the dense tropical rainforest of Papua Island. Surely, acclimatization is mandatory and very important here, as you will fly directly to basecamp at an altitude of over 4.000 meter from Timika city. Climbing Carstensz Pyramid is quite technical, the 600-meter-high bigwall became the last part of this journey, requires basic climbing skills using a fixed rope to reach the highest point before returning to basecamp.
