More info about Mountain Climbing in Indonesia:

Composed of more than 17,500 islands on two continents, Indonesia is home to some unique mountain climbing opportunities. New Guinea, on the very eastern end of the island chain, is home to Mount Carstensz. This is one of the most popular climbing destinations since it is one of the Seven Summits, being the highest mountain in Oceania. The island also offers various other peaks to climb in the Sudirman Range. Buyu Balease and Mount Latimojong, both of which are situated on the central island of Sulawesi, offer excellent mountain climbing options as well. They are both relatively easy to climb and, time permitting, make excellent warm ups for Mount Carstensz
