Mount Binaiya

Journey to the highest mountain in Indonesia’s Spice Islands, Moluccas - Mount Binaiya 3,027m, one of the most exciting, challenging and rewarding mountain climbing expeditions in Indonesia

This is probably one of the most exciting, challenging and rewarding mountain climbs in Indonesia; it’s a tough trek that will stretch your endurance to the limits. Mount Binaiya is located in Manusela National Park on the island of Seram, and is known for the high number of endemic mammals and birds. It is also the last stronghold of several critically endangered animals and plants, including the Moluccan king parrot

We’ll trek for five days through pristine forest, wade through crystal clear rivers and pass different types of vegetation, including a montane zone, which occupies almost one third of the park. Manusela’s plant life is fascinating, with mossy cloud forest and wind-stunted trees from 1,500 m. The opportunity to experience the unique Spice Islands from the Binaiya mountain trail is truly stunning!
