Brief Information About: #CarstenszPyramidExpedition”


Puncak Jaya or Carstensz Pyramid (4,884 m) is the highest peak of Mount Jayawijaya in the western central highlands of Papua Province, Indonesia.
At 4,884 meters above sea level, Carstenz Pyramid is the highest mountain in Indonesia. This is also the highest point between the Himalayas and the Andes, and one of the seventh highest peak in the world.

Puncak Jaya was named the “Carstensz Pyramid” after the Dutch explorer Jan Carstenszoon who first saw glaciers on a mountain peak on a rare day in 1623. The sighting was not verified for more than two centuries, and Carstenszoon was ridiculed in Europe when he said he had seen snow near the equator. The Carstensz Pyramid peak known today was not climbed until 1962, by an expedition led by Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer with three other expedition members – New Zealand mountain climber Philip Temple, Australian rock climber Russell Kippax, and Dutch patrol officer Albertus (Bert ) Huizenga. Temple previously led an expedition to the area and spearheaded access to the mountains. Access to the top requires government permission. The mountain was closed to tourists and climbers between 1995 and 2005. In 2006, access was made possible through various adventure tourism agents.
