About Carstensz

Exotic. Enchanting. Challenging.
Puncak Jaya was named “Carstensz Pyramid” after a Dutch explorer Jan Carstenszoon was the first European who saw the glaciers on the peak of the mountain in 1623. The peak was known as Nemangkawi in Amungkal, a local language, or Puncak Jaya in Bahasa Indonesia. Carstenszoon’s finding was unverified for over two centuries. He was ridiculed in Europe when he said he had seen snow near the equator. Another Dutch explorer, Hendrik Albert Lorentz, eventually reached the snowfield of Puncak Jaya in 1909.
