THE MOUNT WILHELM TRAVERSE
The summit seen from about 20 mins walk away
The Mt.Wilhelm Traverse is for those with a sense of adventure. It is not just a quick weekend trip up to the summit, it takes four days for extremely strong walkers and six for those who want to take it a bit easier. It is an adventure, and you travel through absolutely spectacular country that is different to anywhere else on earth. It's rugged beauty is captivating. The mountain has two faces, the Ambullua side looks like a completely different mountain to the Chimbu side. The country is very noticibly different and very well worth the extra effort to walk through. I definitely recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and for those whoto really like to get off the beaten track (or perhaps make their own).
