Carstensz Adventure By Helicopter

Carstensz Pyramid Expedition

Duration : 6D 5NStarting Price : IDR 88.200.000

MapPuncak Jaya or Carstensz Pyramid (4,884 m) is the highest summit of Mount Jayawijaya or Mount Carstensz in the Sudirman Range of the western central highlands of Papua Province, Indonesia. At 4,884 metres above sea level, Carstenz Pyramid is the highest mountain in Indonesia. It is also the highest point between the Himalayas and the Andes, and the highest island peak in the world. Puncak Jaya was named "Carstensz Pyramid" after Dutch explorer Jan Carstenszoon who first sighted the glaciers on the peak of the mountain on a rare clear day in 1623. The sighting went unverified for over two centuries, and Carstenszoon was ridiculed in Europe when he said he had seen snow near the equator. The current highest Carstensz Pyramid summit was not climbed until 1962, by an expedition led by the Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer with three other expedition members – the New Zealand mountaineer Philip Temple, the Australian rock climber Russell Kippax, and the Dutch patrol officer Albertus (Bert) Huizenga. Temple had previously led an expedition into the area and pioneered the access route to the mountains. Access to the peak requires a government permit. The mountain was closed to tourists and climbers between 1995 and 2005. As of 2006, access is possible through various adventure tourism agencies.
