Open Trek - This trek has been created whereby you will attend the Dawn Service at Bomana War Cemetery for Anzac Day 25th April 2017 and either driven back to your accommodation or dropped off to the Royal Papuan Yacht Club as this is where the majority of trekkers from all different companies hang out on Anzac Day. Trekkers will overnight in Port Moresby at accommodation inclusive with trekking costs ready to begin your trek the following day.

The physical trek start in Kokoda will begin with a short flight over to the Oro Province on the 26th April where you will be met and driven to our base Orohaven Pija Retreat. On the 27th April you will begin your trek when you walk up to Isurava Village to spend your first night on the Kokoda Track. On the 4th May you will finish your trek when you walk through the Archway at Owers' Corner and be picked up by Kokoda Trekking staff and driven back to Port Moresby to end your trek.  - Trek : 1081 - Guide Sione Orosambo
