 Carstensz Pyramid - Seven Summits - Papua

08.01.2017 - 27.01.2017 (20 days) (Guaranteed)

CARSTENSZ PYRAMID / EXPEDITION / PAPUA

At 4,884 meters above sea level, the Carstensz Pyramid is the highest mountain on all of New Guinea and one of the famous "seven summits", the highest summits of the seven continents.

In 1962, the mountain was first climbed by Austrian Heinrich Harrer. Expeditions to this mountainous region of New Guinea require complex permit procedures. Due to his network of contacts, Dr. Weiglein is one of the few Papua experts who successfully guided and organized various expeditions to this region.

This expedition into the jungles and to the icy mountains of the Pacific is a truly unique adventure.

KOROWAI INTENSIVE: CROSSING THE KOROWAI SECTOR / EXPEDITION / PAPUA

Classic expedition to the Korowai tree house nomads. Until this day, the Korowai live far away from civilization, deep in the forest of the Papua lowland. During our tour we will cross the Korowai sector, from Mabul in the West to Yanirumah in the East. We will have many days in the forest which we will mainly spend in the area around Avium river. The deeper we walk inside the sector, the more original people are. We plan to visit several Korowai settlements and will spend more time inside the sector than usual visitors. We will leave the sector from Yanirumah with a missionary charter flight to Wamena. As we plan a daily trekking of minimum 5 hours, a certain fitness is necessary to participate in this tour. Later, in Wamena, we will spend some interesting days in the area of the Dani tribe, in the highlands of Papua. 

Unbeatable value for money.

>>photo diary from this trip<<

Mount Trikora, until 1963 Wilhelmina Peak, is an approximately 4.730 m high mountain in the eastern part of the Jayawijaya mountains in the highlands of Papua. Behind Puncak Jaya (Carstensz Pyramid) at 4,884 m, it is either the second or third highest mountain of the Australasian continent. As such it appeared and still appears on some Second Seven Summit lists.

In a long but doable tour, we want to reach Mt. Trikora starting from Indonesia's highest lake, Lake Habema. Before and after our tour, we will spend several interesting days in the Baliem Valley, the home of the Dani and Lani tribes. Here we will also participate in a big pig festival in a remote Dani settlement. In the end of our journey, we will visit a bird sanctuary located at the North Coast, a region famous for its' many types of bird of paradise.

WAMENA HIGHLAND SHOW, KOROWAI, AND ASMAT / EXPEDITION / PAPUA

Three highlights in one tour! Special expedition to West Papua, including a visit to the colorful Baliem Cultural Festival in the highlands of Wamena. The Highland Show in the Baliem Valley has become internationally popular in recent years and more and more visitors are coming annualy. For three days, clans from all the highland regions gather in Wamena to present their unique culture and to compete in several ancient competitive disciplines.

From Wamena we directly continue to the Korowai forest nomads. Until today, the Korowai live very traditionally in tree houses up to 40 meters height, hidden deep in the forest of West Papua. The Korowai are one of the most original tribes in Papua and visiting them is a very special experience. As they live deep inside the forest, daily trekking is needed. This is physically the most demanding part of our journey.

From the Korowai area it takes about one day by boat to reach Asmat. The people of Asmat are world famous for their craftsmanship and imposing men houses. We plan one big ceremony where a full village will be involved - a spectacle almost no visitor is able to see! From the Asmat, we will fly out to Timika by charter plane.

No fan of Papuan culture should miss this expedition!
