"Steep are the hill we're climbing today, Rivers and valleys dividing the way." -Porters' song.
Known as one of the world's most spectacular and challenging treks, the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea, offers the experience of a lifetime. On the 75th anniversary of the campaign between Australian and Japanese troops, author Nikki Moyes trekked the 96km of track where her grandfather acted as a translator.
Known for its steep, rugged, and muddy mountain terrain, the track also offers stunning scenery, magnificent jungle plant life, and friendly locals. This is what it is like to hike the Kokoda Track.
Includes photos and translated Japanese WWII documents.
Praise for Kokada Trek -
“This is a compelling account of the author's trek on the famous Kokoda Track. There is an excellent mixture of history and the reality of what the track itself is like and by the end I felt exhausted, as if I'd walked with her. I had no real idea of how difficult the track is, but now I do. The photos that accompany each chapter provide additional interest, along with the pieces from the authors grandfather, a Kokoda Track veteran. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the Kokoda Track.” - Amazon Review
