Dawud.eu.org - Jayawijaya Mountains is the name for the mountain ranges that stretch across the provinces of East Papua, Papua (Indonesia) to Papua New Guinea. This mountain range, which has some of the highest peaks in Indonesia, was created several thousand years ago, which originated from the lifting of the sea floor.
The mountains of Jayawijaya have an altitude of up to 4,800 meters above sea level, which allows them to be covered with eternal snow. But due to global warming, this eternal snow is beginning to decrease and it is expected to be dried. Then, it is not impossible for these mountains to lose snow, as did what happened at Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
The Jayawijaya Mountains have several other lower peaks, namely:
- Mandala Peak 4,760 masl
- Trikora peak 4,730 masl
- Idenberg Peak 4,673 masl
- Yamin peak 4,535 masl
- East Carstenz peak 4,400 masl
