The guide for this trek is Ramsy Idau from Saga Village in Kokoda. Accompanying this group is Tom Hango; Jessie Aire; Lancelot and Mathias Geroia. Tagging along because they did not want to fly is Kingsley and Solomon Eroro making their way in for their trek on the 18th July.

Update 17th July 2018
Trek 1149: I received a phone call from an excited Ramsy Idau this morning from Maguli Range saying they were on target and heading towards finishing at Owers’ Corner come tomorrow morning. Stephen was a bit sick yesterday but is ok today. No doubt a huge challenge for these two trekkers but for Ramsey the winner of our last Kokoda Challenge Race in 18 hours non stop, he loves a fast pace. Three other of our Kokoda Challenge boys are on this trek. Jessie Aire, Lancelot and Mathias Geroia, all really fit boys.
Trek 1149: This trek have now reached Ua’Ule Creek and decided to stop there for the night. Approx 5-6 hours tomorrow should see them off the trek and under the archway at Owers’ Corner. Its been a tough few days for this pair so they are no doubt looking foward to celebrating their successful trek once they hit the finish line.
Update 18th July 2018
Trek 1149: Have just heard that Stephen and Norman have successfully completed their trek at Owers’ Corner and are presently in a bus heading towards Port Moresby. Well done guys and thanks for coming back and walking with us again. Congratulation guys from all of our here at Kokoda Trekking. Imagine them today on their last climb up to Owers’
