Mount Wilhelm Ascent

Mount Wilhelm is the highest and the most accessible mountain to climb in Papua New Guinea at 4509 metres. It is a beautiful and moderately difficult climb through rugged terrain and different environments from thick montane rainforest with wild orchids and cycads to an alpine grassland glacial valley with beautiful lakes. Our trek commences from the village of Kelsugl in the Chimbu province, after a flight from Port Moresby to Goroka. The itinerary has been crafted to allow ample acclimatisation and opportunities to appreciate the fascinating culture in local village stays, such as taking in the performance of the world famous mud men and their ritual dance. Reaching the summit at dawn and taking in the spectacular panoramic views are the ultimate reward and ideal accompaniment to the physical challenge of the climb. While the ascent does not require any technical climbing, various sections can be demanding and slippery underfoot, and summit day is a long and sustained day. After Kokoda, this is the must do trek if you want to immerse yourself in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.
