Mount Trikora Expedition
Duration: 18 days / 17 nights
Start / Finish : JAKARTA
The central mountains of New Guinea are up there among the world’s highest – at just over 4,750m, Mount Trikora (or Mt. Pirgin to the locals) is the second highest peak in New Guinea after Puncak Jaya (5040m), and is bettered only by peaks in the Himalayas and outlying ranges, the western spine of the Americas, East Africa, the Caucasus, as well as Vinson Massif in Antarctica (5,140m), and Mt. Blanc in the Alps (4807m).
Of the two highest peaks in New Guinea, Mount Trikora is by far the easier to visit, since it is only a few days hike from Wamena, the major town in the mountains of West Papua, and only a day or two from Lake Habbema, a tourist destination that is (at least in theory) accessible by road from town.
Puncak Jaya lies some way to the west, and visiting it would require a charter flight and/or a much longer hike. One advantage of visiting this more remote peak, however, would be the chance to see some of the remaining glaciers on New Guinea, fast melting but still extant, unlike the glacier on Trikora, which disappeared sometime in the mid-1900s.
