Papua New Guinea

Photo of Papua New Guinea

Hiking though thick jungle along the Kokoda Track the sweat drips down your back, and the history of this countryside hangs in the air around you. Australians, Americans, and Japanese all lost their lives fighting over this treacherous terrain in the 1940s. The hike is demanding, yet rewarding, with over 4,000 people trekking across this verdant interior land each year, to get closer to the history or the place as wel as to its ecology.

Local tribes still inhabit Papau New Guinea's highlands, however there is often crime and tribal warfare to be found there too, so visitors are advised to avoid. The rest of the eastern half of New Guinea is covered with reefs and other wartime sites, and locals eager to welcome the visitors into their communities.
