Imagine flying back over the 93 kilometres of steep Kokoda Track you’ve just spent 13 days trekking up and down. You’ll have crossed The Owen Stanley Range, the central spine of Papua New Guinea, paid homage at the main Second World War battle sites and gained an appreciation for the rugged beauty of the region. But it is the immense sense of achievement you’ll feel after completing Peregrine’s most arduous challenge that makes this trek so worthwhile. Trekking the Kokoda Track is both physically and mentally sapping – after breathing deep at one of the track’s panoramic rest stops you’ll have to think about every footfall along the often slippery and root-strewn trail. But the spectacular landscape, historical significance and interaction with the local villagers, who’ve used the track for centuries, make this trek one of the world’s best. Just first make sure you’re fit.
