Track Accommodation, Communication and Flights
PNG Trekking Adventures supplies 2 person tents for all our trekkers. We find that a 1 person tent is just that only enough room for 1 body not much else. With a 2 person tent you will be able to get your gear in it with you. They all have a fly with vestibules so trekkers can leave their large pack and boots, poles in this area and will stay dry. The tents are all mosquito and bug proof.
We also stay in guest houses in villages which we have helped furnish with foam mattresses and pillows. If you choose to sleep in a guest house you must put up your mosquito net. They are traditionally built, wooden floors, bamboo walls, and thatched roofs. One door and windows with no glass.
Our village families will prepare special treats for our trekkers and boys. Pumpkin tips, tapioca, fried sweet potato and greens to compliment our evening meals.
Trekkers please make sure that you bring in all your clothes, boots etc each evening. Do not leave it hanging out side. The track is still used by local people to commute between Popendetta and Port Moresby. If they see a pair a boots laying in the middle of a camp site it may be just too tempting for them to pass by without taking them. Our boys will try and ensure that all gear is put away at night but there is always the possibility they may miss something. Also in saying this, we have never had anything stolen from any of our camp sites.
Please remember to never leave any food outside your tent or lying around the campsite. There are often dogs roaming around which are used for hunting by the villagers, they will be off with it in an instant. Always have food inside your zipped up tent.
Our boys have their own accommodation in villages and campsite. You will hear them at night softly telling stories around their campfire and singing songs.
There is some mobile coverage at the beginning and end of the track. This is very sporadic and can not be relied upon.
PNG Trekking Adventures carries satellite phones and track radios. The sat phone is used every evening to report into the office about how the trek is going and any other funny stories that have happened that day. This is then uploaded onto the PNG Trekking Adventures Facebook so family and friends can monitor the trek. Both the sat phone and radio can be affected by the weather and terrain that we are in. If it is overcast and we are deep in a valley camping then it is sometimes difficult to get a satellite. If we are unable to chat with the office that evening we endeavor to get through as soon as we are on higher ground the next morning.
Trekkers who bring up mobile phones please leave them back at the hotel. Do not take out on the track. In Port Moresby they can be used if you are with Vodafone, Telstra, Optus, H3G, or have International Roaming. Otherwise if you want to call home there is the option of using the land line phone in your hotel room. Please check your mobile phone carrier or Digicel our PNG Carrier website for more information.
