Papua

Papua is the largest province in Indonesia and its capital is Jayapura. The central area of the province is dominated by a vast mountain range. Puncak Jaya, at 4884 metres above sea level, is Indonesia’s highest peak. A ‘surat jalan’ (permit to travel) is required for travel in this province.

None of the Ribus in Papua are easy to bag – not even Cyclops which lies close to Sentani airport. The ‘big three’  (Puncak Jaya, Puncak Mandala and Puncak Trikora) are expensive to arrange and require lots of planning, lots of time and some technical rock climbing ability.
