Take this opportunity to experience 2 days and 1 night out on the Kokoda Trail. It is undoubtedly our most famous trek here in Papua New Guinea.
We have 2 trek options on offer.
Option 1: Walk into Goodwater Campsite, this we class as an easy trek. Although there is a steep 30 minute climb back up to Owers Cnr on Sunday at the end. It is not a race and we take our time with lots of stops.
For those in the group if they would like to go on further there is the opportunity to walk up Imita Ridge and back again. Another 2-2 1/2 hrs of climbing. Remember you can turn back at any time with your guide.
Goodwater has a lovely swimming hole, the water is warm, in the evening enjoy sitting around the campfire telling stories and experiencing the noisy Kokoda jungle.
Option 2: Is a challenging walk into Va Ule Creek 6-7 hours of hard walking each way. Another beautiful campsite with a lovely swimming hole. This walk really does give a good indication of what it would be like to do the entire track. Trekkers need good hiking boots and need to be very fit to take this option.
The Campsites are not in a good condition, our Crew will walk in on Friday afternoon, this evening they will
cut the grass and set up tents and get the site ready for walkers arriving the next day. They will walk back out
on Saturday morning to meet everyone at Owers Corner to walk back in with them. Anyone having any issues they
can help and also carry day packs if necessary.
Meet this morning place TBA at 8:30am. It will take around 1 1/2 hours to drive up to Owers Cnr. Meeting our PNG Trekking Adventures crew at Owers Cnr. The will be their waiting for the group. It is
a steep descent down to Goldie River, go carefully. Once at the river take off boots and socks to cross.
From here it is another 1 1/2 - 2 hours into Goodwater Campsite which is our destination for the night.
For those that would like to walk further this afternoon take a guide and head up Imita Ridge. If you decide to do this it is recommended that trekkers have boots to wear. It is always wet and muddy. Remember trekkers can turn back to camp at any time with their guide.
For those of you that just want to relax this afternoon there is a lovely swimming hole here, can read, play cards. There will always be hot water boiling for coffee/tea.
Rise this morning around 7:30am, have a leisurely breakfast. Walk back
out to Owers Cnr to rendezvous with your arranged transport. It is a very steep climb from Goldie River up to the arches. Take your time and have lots of rests.
Meet this morning place TBA at 5:30am. It will take around 1 1/2 hours to drive up to Owers Cnr. Everyone will meet their guides here. First off it is a
steep descent down to Goldie River, go carefully and take your time. Once at the river take off shoes and socks
to cross. From here it is another 1 1/2 - 2 hours into Goodwater Campsite. We will stop here for a bite to eat.
From Goodwater to the top of Imita Ridge will take a couple of hours to climb. Expect it to be wet and muddy. Its a long hard climb, followed by a long descent down to our campsite. This will take approximately 2-2 1/2 hours. About 30 minutes out from the campsite the group will be walking along a creek bed. Suggest don't bother taking your boots off unless you have a pair of comfortable open shoes you can put on to walk this sector. The campsite has a great swimming hole. Relax for the remainder of the day, enjoy dinner and everyone will most likely be in bed early as is a long 6-7 hour day.
Sunday - Va Ule Campsite, Owers Cnr, Port Moresby.
Rise this morning 5:00am and must be walking no later than 6:30am. First thing this morning is walking back
up Imita Ridge. This is undoubtedly one of the hardest ascents along the entire Kokoda Trail. Back down off the
ridge into Goodwater. Have a 15 minute break here and then head back to Goldie River before tackling another
very steep hill into Owers Cnr to rendezvous with your arranged transport around 1pm.
Note: We can take trekkers any date that suits into either campsites. Treks going out between the months
of May and November.
