Embessa Cultural Trek

Designed for experienced trekkers with a passion for discovering new and remote areas. The Embessa Cultural Papua New Guinea Trek is beyond anything you have experienced before.

Home to an extraordinary array of vegetation and wildlife, the area has sustained indigenous people for thousands of years. Stunning scenery, pristine wilderness and the remoteness of the Papua New Guinean jungle. This is a hidden world of dense tropical rainforest, fast flowing rivers, rugged mountain ranges and savannah grasslands. Papua New Guinea is one of the world’s last wild frontiers.

Your experience will take you from coast to coast, as we travel by bus from Port Moresby to the start of our trek, by foot for 11 days and by boat to finish our adventure at Oro Bay. Getaway Trekking is the only operator offering this trek, and you will revel in this pristine environment, where few white people have been before you.

You will be captivated by the welcome you receive from these beautiful and gentle people, humbled by their hospitality and generosity, and awed by their traditional costumes, dancing and culture.

The Embessa Cultural Trek is more than just a trek and is an experience you will never forget.
