For many, climbing to the 4509m summit of Mt Wilhelm is the highlight of a Highlands trip. On a clear day, you can see both the north and south coasts of PNG. It is the tallest peak in PNG and often billed as the tallest in Oceania (even though several mountains in Indonesian Papua surpass it as, technically, all of Indonesia belongs to Asia).

Even if you don’t intend to tackle the summit, the region around the base offers fantastic walking and dramatic landscapes.
