Trekking in Papua New Guinea
Set high on a mountainside 11km from Goroka, this 80ha provincial park has great views, picnic shelters and clearly marked walking tracks. Free admission.
This lovely area has some of the Highlands’ most beautiful scenery. Most people walk to Lake Kutubu and fly out from Pimaga. The longest route, from Nipa, takes three days and is fairly rigorous. Take a guide.
Ambua Lodge and Lakwanda Lodge can organise hikes and tours through this area, known for its thriving traditional cultures, including the Asaro Mudmen.
Mount Giluwe (4368m)
The country’s second-highest mountain is an old shield volcano with vast alpine grasslands. Ancient lava plugs form the two summits, which offer superb views over the Highlands. It can be climbed from Palnol or Kopkop villages (4 days), or from near Tambul in Western Highlands Province. Kiburu Lodge at Mendi can organise walks and treks.
Mount Ialibu (3465m)
The climb up Mount Ialibu and other hikes can be made from Ialibu, midway between Mendi and Mount Hagen.
Mount Wilhelm (4509m)
This is a fantastic climb in a sub-alpine environment, made harder by the altitude. In clear weather the Madang coast can be seen from the summit. It can be climbed from Kegsugl or from remote Ambulla Village. Take some guides and warm clothes.
The road to Kegsugl at the base of Mount Wilhelm snakes through rugged country patchworked with gardens on impossibly steep slopes. Several pleasant guesthouses cater for trekkers and make a good base for exploring other villages. One of them, Betty’s Lodge, has its own trout and rabbit farm.
Longer hikes can be taken from Mount Hagen to the towering peaks of Mount Hagen (3791m), Mount Ongo, Mount Kubor, Mount Kini Kaino Ku, and Mount Giluwe (4368m). Trans Niugini Tours, on Kongin Street behind the hospital, can organise tours and treks.
This scenic Crater Lake sits at an altitude of nearly 3000m, and can be reached from Pumas village above Laiagam. Allow two days and take a guide.
