Mount Trikora (former: Mount Wilhelmina) is situated in the eastern part of the Jayawijaya Mountains, in the Indonesian Papua Province. Mount Trikora is one of the "seven second summits" and therefore well-known in the mountaineering society. The classic "seven summit" is the Carstensz Pyramid (4,884 meters above sea level) which is only 100km apart as the crow flies and which can be considered the bigger brother of Mount Trikora as both mountains are similar in geomorphologic sense.

Until today Dr. Weiglein succesfully guided 8 expeditions into the Trikora Mountains. With the followign program every interested mountaineer receives the chance to do this expedition individually, at any time of the year. The tour will be guided by our experienced local guides.

Planned itinerary

Day 1

Arrival in Wamena, Transfer to THE BALIEM VALLEY RESORT. Overnight including full board.

Day 2

Drive to the southern side of Lake Habema by off-road vehicle, together with guide, cook and porters. Depending on weather and road conditions, we must schedule the whole day for this ride. Shortly after leaving the vehicle, tentcamp at typical highmoor landscape.

Day 3

Today, about 6 hours trekking until we reach our camping ground. In the morning we first cross Wamena River and then go pass wide open grassland with many picturesque tree ferns. Short lunchbreak. We reach our camp for the night in the early afternoon.

Day 4

Today we need about 3-4 hours until we reach the famous SOMALAK cave. This spacious cave provides enough room for our whole crew to sleep and cook as well as shelter from the rain. In 1905, the cave was used for the first time as a camping site during the Lorentz expedition. Since then it became an important point for all Trikora expeditions.

Day 5

Ascent to the base camp, located directly at the foot of the Trikora main massif. This trek will take 2-3 hours. Depending on weather conditions, we might have time to climb the nearby TRIKORA MINOR after raising our camp. At a good sight one has an unforgettable view over wide parts of the central highlands as well as the Baliem Valley in the distance.

Day 6

Before dawn we start the ascent of MOUNT TRIKORA. The way to and over the ridge is quite easy but far. The ascent of the highest rocky promontory is difficult and only feasible with professional equipment. Later descent to the camp of our crew directly underneath our basecamp. Only here we find enough wood for cooking.

Day 7

Descent and trekking back to our meeting point at the road near Lake Habema. Today nightcamp in the forest.

Day 8

Only 1-2 hourse of trekking until we reach our pick-up point next to the road. Around noon we await our car. Drive via Wamena back to The Baliem Valley Resort. Overnight including full board at the Resort.

Day 9

Breakfast at the Resort. End of our tour.
