Possibly the most exotic mountaineering location on earth, Carstensz Pyramid in Western Papua is a large limestone escarpment jutting out of the rainforest. Coveted as the highest peak in Oceania, Carstensz Pyramid is the most remote of the Seven Summits.
Whilst travel in this region of the world is often problematic, the rewards of the adventure into this wild corner of the globe are substantial. Unlike any other peak you climb, this expedition will enable you to redefine adventure.
- Equatorial mountaineering adventure
- Exhilarating rock climbing
- A remote and exotic Seven Summits peak
Adventure Consultants has been operating expeditions to Carstensz Pyramid since 1990, climbing the North Face in a long day from Base Camp.
Carstensz appears as a mysterious and relatively unvisited climbing objective, flanked with glaciers and rising like a shark’s fin out of the mist of the jungle.
This expedition has the attributes of a classic rock climb combined with a rare cultural experience. It is a journey of discovery and achievement, and most likely your best chance of experiencing this part of the world and standing on the summit of this exotic peak.
