This peak is a mountain peak which is quite unique in that because these peaks covered by eternal snow. Eternal snow on top Jayawijaya is one of three snow fields in the tropics who are in the world.
In Indonesia it is traversed by the equator, of course, quite impossible and difficult to understand if there is snow in this country.
Carstensz Pyramid is one of the snowy peaks. The highest peak in South East Asia and Pacific region, located in the Sudirman Mountain range. This peak is also listed as one of the top seven continents (seven summit) that are phenomenal and the target of mountaineers in the world. Jayawijaya peak is located in the National Park Laurentz, Papua.
