Product Description


Day 1: POM – KOKODA
The first night will be at Orohav Pija Retreat. You will love the pizza. The following morning, you will begin your trek around 7 am in the morning.
Day 2: KOKODA – ISURAVA
It is here that the reality hits you – the Kokoda Trail will not be easy. It is quite steep at the beginning; however, do not throw in the towel yet. After about five hours walk, you arrive at Isurava. It was the site of a significant World War II battle and now one of the most – sacred sites along the trail. Here, you enjoy panoramic views of the Kokoda and Yodda valleys then overnight at the village guest house.
Day 3: ISURAVA – IORA CREEK
We set off for the next village of Alola, and on to Iora Creek, where we overnight.
Day 4: IORA CREEK – TEMPLETON’S CROSSING
Today starts with a steep climb, then a descent, to Templeton’s Crossing where we spend the night under the forest canopy and the gentle voice of the Iora Creek splashing against the rocks. Trout fishing is available for those who have fishing lines.
Day 5: TEMPLETON’S CROSSING – 1900
Day 5 begins with another climb up and down, another crossing of Iora Creek, and then a climb to the top of Mount Bellamy, the highest point of the Kokoda Trail. You will then descend down to 1900 which is a beautiful little campsite where you will spend the night relaxing by the fire.
Day 6: 1900 – MENARI
We start early with a walk to the Naduri, descend to the creek, and then ascend to Efogi No. 2 village. Then we descend to Efogi, where we rest and collect our pre – arranged food drop. From here, we climb up to Brigade Hill – which together with Isurava is one of the most – sacred sites of the Kokoda Trail – and then descend to Menari village where we spend the night.
Day 7: MENARI – NAORO
We start with a steep hill and are rewarded from the summit with fine views of Menari. We make a muddy, swampy, and at times leech – infested trek to the Brown River, which we must cross with care especially if in flood. We walk on to Naoro where we overnight.
Day 8: NAORO – VA’ULE CREEK
We start by climbing the heartbreaking false peaks of Maguli Ridge (you can count them yourself). We descend to Ofi Creek for a well – deserved break, make another climb to Ioribaiwa Ridge, and then descend to Va’ Ule Creek where we spend our last night.
Day 9: VA’ULE CREEK – OWERS’ CORNER
Our last hard grind up the Imita Ridge, and then descend the ‘Golden Stairs’ to the Goldie River. A last refreshing dip before climbing up to Owers’ Corner.

Day 1: KOKODA – ISURAVA

Today you will begin to realise just how challenging this trek will really be. This part of the Kokoda Trail is not easy and presets you with a tough, steep climb in the beginning. But don’t be disheartened – this is just a test to get you started and challenge your stamina. Five hours on from here you will arrive in Isurava. Isurava is home to a magnificent war memorial – opened by Australian Prime Minister John Howard in 2002 – and was the site of a significant World War II battle. Isurava is now regarded as one of the most sacred sites along the trail and is made all the more special by panoramic views of the Kokoda and Yodda valleys along the way. To rest your weary limbs after day one, you will stay overnight at the local guest house.

Day 2: ISURAVA – IORA CREEK

After a restful evening, we set off early in the day, for our next destination – the village of Alola, and then move on to Iora Creek. It is here that we stop to take in the scenery, take a swim and settle in for the evening.

Day 3: IORA CREEK – TEMPLETON’S CROSSING

Faced with a challenging and steep climb, and then a sharp descent, we finally reach Templeton’s Crossing which is where we spend the night. Imagine spending the evening under the forest canopy and falling asleep to the gentle voice of the Iora Creek splashing against the rocks? That will be you. And if you bring a line, you can also try your hand at trout fishing.

Day 4: TEMPLETON’S CROSSING – KAGI

Day four sees you trek begin with another steep climb and descent – much like day two. With another crossing of Iora Creek, you will then climb to the top of Mt Bellamy, the highest point of the Kokoda Trail and take in the panoramic views of the area. You will be treated to a wonderful reward here – an enjoyable walk through a carpet of moss, which will take you to the junction of Myola and Kagi, which is land marked by an aircraft propeller. It is here that we will make a right turn right, make a climb, and then descend to the splendorous village of Kagi. Kagi quite simply, commands spectacular views of villages along the Kokoda Trail and is a must see for trekkers to the area.

Day 5: KAGI – MENARI

We start early with a walk to the airstrip, regarded as the steepest walk in the world, where we will descend to the creek, and then ascend to Efogi No. 2 village. If we turn back and look you will be able to see your trekking path from Kagi and it is at this point that we begin to make our descent into Efogi, where we rest and collect our food and supplies thanks to a pre- arranged food drop.

After our rest stop we take a challenging climb up to Brigade Hill. Brigade Hill, along with Isurava is one of the most sacred sites along the Kokoda Trail and having taken in this most beautiful area, you will then begin your descent to the village of Menari. As you continue along and then

begin a further climb up a steep hill you will be taken in by summit as it presents you with fine views of Menari. This is where we stop the evening.

Day 6: MENARI – NAURO

Today is the day for truly breathtaking moments and challenges all in one. We make a muddy, swampy, and at times leech – infested trek to the Brown River, which must be crossed with great care, especially if the River is in flood. Next take a walk onto the village of Nauro where we stop for the night to eat and rest, ready for day five.

Day 7: NAURO – UA-ULE CREEK

We begin our day by climbing the heartbreaking false peaks of Maguli Ridge (where you will even have time to count them yourself). After descending to Ofi Creek for a well – deserved break, we will then make another climb to Ioribaiwa Ridge, and a subsequent descent to Ua’Ule Creek for our last night together on the Kokoda track.

Day 8: UA’ULE CREEK – OWERS’ CORNER

With one final push for day six, we do the hard graft to reach Imita Ridge, and then descend the ‘Golden Stairs’ and the Goldie River. As a reward, we take one last refreshing dip in the River before climbing up to Owers’ Corner.
