TREKKING

MT HAGEN & GILUWE 2016

Mount Hagen is located in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, sharing borders with Western and Enga Provinces. It takes about 4 hours for seasoned mountain trekkers and 5 hours for the amateur or novice from the base camp to the summit. Observe orchids, exotic plants, insects and birds as you trek through our pristine rainforests. An early morning walk is encouraged to ensure you can take in the superb views from the summit overlooking Mt. Hagen and Nebilyer Valley, a must for photographers and nature lovers alike.  Strong winds prevail around the summit and trekkers must take precautions against falling off the sharp and sometimes slippery ridges.  

Rated: High Moderate

Mount Giluwe, at 4368 metres above sea level, is the highest volcano in Pacific Oceania and is also located in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea sharing its border with the Western and Southern Highlands. It is one of 'the 7 volcanic summits'.

Giluwe is best tackled after Mount Hagen, once you have become acclimatised to altitude and conditions. Night time temperatures drop rapidly and can be uncomfortable in the basic traditional style accommodation on the mountainside, however, extra warm clothing, a fleecy sleeping bag and an open log fire should assist in making your night's sleep manageable. 

Rated: High Moderate

Dates: These tours are run on an ad-hoc basis so get your group together and decide on when you want to go. The best time is May to October.
