Mt Wilhelm is the highest peak in
Papua New Guinea.
On a clear day both north and south
coasts of New Guinea can be seen from the summit.
The first stage of the climb passes
Pindaunde lakes at an altitude of about 3500 m.
From the lakes it is about 5 hours
walk to the summit.
It is advisable to spend some time
acclimatising at the lakes before attempting to reach the summit.
There is a risk of altitude sickness
on the mountain.
