Mt Wilhelm Adventures

E-mail Print PDF


Papua New Guinea has a vast range of trekking and adventures on offer. These ranges from soft to moderate to very hard depending on the physical fitness and “spirit of adventure” one has to encounter. Our un-spoilt rainforests, rivers, mountainous regions and incredible scenery have made Papua New Guinea a country with popular option for both amateur and professional bushwalkers, trekkers, rock climbers, cave explorers and mountaineers. There are options to suit everyone, ranging from short tour around local villages to weeks of rafting and trekking with tour operators like Country Tours.


The highest peak of Papua New Guinea is mount Wilhelm standing at 4509 m above sea level. It’s located in the heart of the highlands region in Chimbu Province and has rugged peaks with well-formed trails leading to the summit. The ascent crosses diverse and beautiful terrain with open grassland on the slopes and rocks predominant in the higher levels. It is not a technical mountain nor does it need ropes or high altitude mountain gear required, but it requires a level of fitness. Mt Wilhelm can be climbed all year round except try to avoid the rainy periods, as it can be slippery to climb.
