Mount Humboldt

  • Mountain
Mont Humbolt, Paita 98890 Païta
It is the second highest peak in New Caledonia after Mount Panié.
If Mount Panié (1627 m) is the highest point of New Caledonia, Mount Humboldt (sometimes nicknamed Pic Humboldt) follows it closely, with the height of 1 616 meters. And, unlike its neighbor of the great North, it is possible to reach its summit at the end of a two-day hike.

It was named after Alexander von Humboldt, a naturalist and explorer (1769-1859), considered by many as the father of modern geography. It is visible, further down the chain as you approach the Tontouta airport.
