    Stellar, a view I’ll likely never see. What is this I have read about this place? Something about a mine and having to have permission to cross their land to get here?

    (HK) Hi Jeff, thanks for your comments. Yes, just a few kilometers away is the Freeport mine, one of the biggest ecological (and sociological) disasters in the world. They have made a private road that goes close to the mountain, but it is not allowed to use it.

The story behind "Basecamp of Carstensz Pyramid, Papua"

Cold and wet and windy was our campsite at the foot of Carstensz Pyramid, the highest mountain of Australasia/Oceania. Though just a few kilometers lower the jungle is hot, here the cold and barren rocks make for an unwelcome atmosphere…
