The picture on top doesn't belong to the Swiss Alps or to the Spanish Pyrenees. Nor it does belong to the Peruvian Andes or to the Canadian Rockies. This is the highest mountain in between the Himalayas and the Andes.
This is Puncak Jaya, the highest mountain in Oceania. Certain people discount this mountain as NOT the highest mountain in Southeast Asia, giving the distinction to Malaysia's Mt. Kinabalu.
For me though, this snow-capped Indonesian mountain is the highest peak in South East Asia and Oceania combined.
Who would have thought that the tropics would host ice fields like this?
