Trekking to the Carstensz Pyramid is one of the most beautiful treks Papua can offer. Although it is demanding the things you'll see and experience on the way, are wonderful and absolutely unique.

It begins at the height of 2000 m in an area of mountainous rain forest. You wade through rivers, climb over logs and primitive bridges, and then the biotope changes into a short belt of misty forests, which opens to the Kembalo Plato that is situated at 3500 m. Here, the endless forest of the giant tree ferns begins. This forest reaches all the way to the Snow Mountains, where the giant mountains begin. The massive of the Carstensz Pyramid towers over the Kembalo Plato with super elevation of 1500 m. The route to the New Zealand Pass is an alpine experience.

Our Base Camp is situated on the foothill of the Carstensz Pyramid in this valley. At this place you are at the height 4200 m, and even here it snows in the morning.  
 The Carstensz Summit climb was exciting. It was a mixture of free - climbing, jumaring and scrambling with moderate difficulty, 5.8 for short steps, but most of the climbing is scrambling.

The rock is extremely good, rarely loose, and always provides good friction even in wet weather, and it is very abrasive so it necessary to wear gloves while climbing. It is important that you have basic rock climbing and are comfortable with rappelling and jumaring

From BC you can see Carstensz Summit, Jaya Summit (Ngapulu) and East Carstensz. Summit attack is usually starting on 3 or 4 o clock in the morning.
