The Seven Summits are the world’s highest mountain peaks initiated by Dick Bass after completing his seventh ascent of Everest. Did you know that one of the seven summits turns out to be in Indonesia, namely the Carstensz Peak?
Indonesia is an island country in Southeast Asia that has mountains, some of which are active volcanoes. And Carstensz is the highest peak in Indonesia. From the term seven summits in the world, we try to discuss the seven summits in Indonesia.
Sport Tourism Destination
It is not wrong for us to call Indonesia a sports tourism destination because of the many mountains and hills in this Southeast Asian country. Indonesia is also a ring of fire route where the region often experiences earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
For sport tourism enthusiasts, Indonesia is the best place for mountain hikers in the world. In addition, Indonesia also has seven summits that are very stunning, one of which is Mount Rinjani. Steep tracks and beautiful scenery are the specialties of the mountains in Indonesia.
Mount Rinjani on Lombok Island, for example, is listed as the third-highest peak in Indonesia. The second-highest peak for the active volcano category. Meanwhile, Mount Kerinci in Jambi is the highest volcano in Southeast Asia.
Seven Summits Of Indonesia
Not inferior to the seven Summits in the world, Indonesia also has seven magnificent summits. These mountain peaks are scattered in various regions in Indonesia.

In addition to being the first highest peak in Indonesia, Carstensz Peak is also included in the world’s seven summits. Carstensz Peak is the name of the peak of the Jayawiya mountain range in Papua, Indonesia, which has an altitude of 4884 meters above sea level. In Indonesia itself, this mountain peak is also known as Puncak Jaya and Puncak Soekarno.
Interestingly, Indonesia actually only has 2 seasons, namely the rainy season and the dry season. Meanwhile, Carstensz Peak has eternal snow that will continue to exist. A unique sight for a country with a tropical climate.
Being the seven summits of Indonesia, Carstensz Peak or Jaya Wijaya Peak is a peak surrounded by snow. The stable temperature of the mountain causes ice or snow on the slopes of the Jayawijaya mountain range. Meanwhile, the peak itself is not covered with snow.
This 3805m high mountain not only holds the status of the seven summits of Indonesia but is the highest volcano in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asian countries include Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Indonesia.
Meanwhile, Mount Kerinci is an active volcano just like Mount Rinjani on the island of Lombok, Nusa Tenggara. It is located on the island of Sumatra, precisely in the province of Jambi.
Indonesia as an archipelago has 38 provinces spread across various islands. If you are at the top of Kerinci, climbers will see the city of Jambi and the Indian Ocean clearly.
