This trek is going along really well. Yesterday they walked through rain from Imita Ridge down to Ua'Ule Creek where they camped for the night. Today they had a tough walk through Ioribaiwa Village followed by Maguli Range before reaching Naoro Village where they are spending the night. I just spoke to Ramsey Idau their guide and he said everyone is ok and doing well.

Another hard day for this group who left Naoro this morning and headed to Agulogo then Menari Village followed by a hard climb up to Brigade Hill. Mid afternoon they headed down to Efogi the half way point where they have pulled up for the night. Ramsey continues to say they are all doing well. Tonight it seems they asked for some kau kau (sweet potato) and as I spoke to Ramsey the boys were in the background preparing their evening meal.

Ramsey called to say they were at Templeton's Crossing and that they were all ok. The plan tomorrow is to head to Alola Village. I also spoke to Emily and she sounded like she was having a good time just wanted to confirm she would arrive back in town in time to catch her flight back home.

Trekkers are now at Alola Village for the night. Weather has been perfect and they are still enjoying their walk across the track. Tomorrow they edge a bit closer to the finish line as they head to Hoi for the night. Think of them tomorrow as they walk through Isurava Memorial area.

Their last night on the track was spent at Hoi and this morning they walked down to Kokoda and under the archway around 9:30am.

So well done to everyone and congratulations from all of us here at Kokoda Trekking.

At the present time they are at Orohaven Pija before flying to Port Moresby tomorrow morning.
