Mount Humboldt

Mountain in 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.
