Training for the Trek

For a superb Kokoda Track trekking experience, preparation is the key.

Walking the Kokoda Track is a difficult undertaking. The terrain is rough and temperatures are high and humid year round. Trekkers are advised that they need to be physically and mentally fit and aware of the risks associated with this type of trek.

The Kokoda Track Authority strongly recommended that a full medical check by your doctor be undertaken prior to embarking on the trek or starting any training program. For specialist advice on health issues when trekking in Papua New Guinea, click here.

Some tour companies offer a training programme for trekkers visiting Papua New Guinea, starting 6-12 months before the walk starts. A training regime spanning several months prior to departure (not necessarily with a tour company) is essential. Click here to read more about planning your Kokoda Track trek.
