Trek with Kokoda Trekking & have an adventure of a lifetime

The Kokoda Trail is one of the world’s great treks, linking the southern and northern coast of Papua New Guinea, it is a challenge to be enjoyed by the fit bushwalker. The Kokoda Trail and Sogeri area have a history of bitter fighting between Australian and Japanese armies during the early days of the war in the Pacific in World War II.

The 96 km Kokoda trail passes through rugged mountainous country of rainforest, jungles of fern, orchids, birds and clean mountain streams which tumble into steep valleys. The unspoilt villages throughout the Kokoda Track will welcome you and the Koiari and Orokaiva people will greet you with smiles and tempt you with seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Trek 1148: Trekkers and staff in this group are making their way up to Brigade Hill. This hill is a tough climb. In one of our Kokoda Challenge Races, a well known Australian Adventurer Runner Damon Goerke who was leading the race at that stage remarked to me: Gail I was half way up Brigade Hill and I saw a log and spread myself out on it to take a break as I was absolutely stuffed. He added, his thoughts went to the fact he had the best shoes; best gear; fittest he had ever been in his life; power gels to him the best chance of winning the race and yet here he was lying on a log asking himself how he was going to get to the top of the hill. He said he later looked up and saw a PNG local standing there looking down at him. He said he thought he must be laughing at him, so he got himself off that log, pumped out his chest and one foot after another got to the top of the hill. Damon a short time later was running down to Efogi Village to our checkpoint with just about everyone in the village outside to welcome him. Damon raced twice, this story was from his 2006 race. Walking in the opposite direction is Wayne Urina Tihimi one of our staff who came 2nd in the same race. Wayne passed Damon at Isurava Memorial. Wayne is a practical joker, he said when he saw Damon he remarked, I caught you, bye bye, see you in Kokoda. At that stage Damon thought he was almost to Kokoda but later found he still had a couple of hours to go.

So think of trek 1148 today as they make their way up Brigade Hill and knowing how they may feel once they too reach the top.

Trek 1148: Pat just called to say they reached Menari mid afternoon and that they were all well. It rained sometime today but it did not stop them from having a dip in the creek to cool off. Seems tonight there are three trekking companies in the village but all ok as some are down the bottom and they are at the top. Tomorrow they will have another tough day ahead of them as they climb up Brigade Hill. The plan at this stage is to head through Efogi to Efogi II but this could change depending on how everyone is going, Please Note: photographs used are from previous treks. Trek 1148 photographs will be posted online as soon as they fly back in upon completion of their trek. ... See MoreSee Less
