The Kokoda Track may push your mental toughness to the limit, so remaining focused on what you set out to accomplish is important. Walking the Kokoda Track is not easy. It may be extremely difficult at times yet can provide you with immense feelings of euphoria.

Travelling in a remote, underdeveloped country like Papua New Guinea requires patience, flexibility and a positive attitude. The local people have a more relaxed, easy-going attitude to life than most Westerners. You may have to wait longer for service in a shop, hotel or restaurant than you would expect to back home. At Back Track, we don’t look upon these things as problems, merely facts of life in PNG. If you are open-minded, relaxed and strive to be happy, your travels will be rewarding and unforgettable.
