FAQs: Mountain Climbing in Indonesia

What should I know about Mountain Climbing 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.

Why should I choose Indonesia for my Mountain Climbing adventure?

**Stunning scenery **

Indonesia is a simply stunning place and mountain climbing is one of the best ways to see the myriad beauties of the island. Many of the top climbing destinations are on the eastern island of New Guinea. Here, climbers get to get up above the thick jungles and enjoy stunning views out over a landscape that is largely undeveloped and rarely seen by people. There is nothing like concluding a trek through these magnificent rainforests with an epic mountain ascent.

Climb one of the Seven Summits

In the western highlands on the island of New Guinea, Mount Carstensz is the tallest mountain in Oceania. This fact attracts numerous ambitious moutnaineers to its summit each year. However, in order to get there, you will need to be a competent rock climber. While it is the smallest of the world’s Seven Summits, it is also rated as the most technically difficult and will require an entire day of non-stop climbing to get to its summit.

Get off the beaten path

Many of Indonesia’s top mountain climbing destinations are remotely located on less populated islands. This means many expeditions here will get you well off the beaten path and allow you to disconnect from the hectic modern world. Enjoy fresh air and untainted views as you trek and climb through the remote wilderness. Leave your cell phone behind and with it the daily worries of our modern society.

What can I expect from the weather in Indonesia?

During the winter months, average daily temperatures in the highlands of Indonesia are about 23 °C. Critically, rain is less frequent than during the monsoon season, but still not rare. Expect between 120 mm and 275 mm of rain each month during these months.

How can I get to Indonesia?

Any mountain climbing trip to Indonesia will likely begin with a flight into Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali (DPS). Guides will generally opt to meet you here and arrange transport to the start of the trip.
