Papua New Guinea, 2019
In March 2019, I will undertake a two-month journey through the interior of Papua New Guinea.
The goal is to get from the coast (at Lae) back to the coast (at Wewak) via the country's three highest peaks and having paddled the longest river, the Sepik, from source to sea.
The entire route will be completed without motorised transport and is approximately 1,500 miles, breaking down as follows:
Cycling: 500 miles
Hiking: 300 miles
Packrafting: 700 miles
Some of the challenges en route will include local crime, tribal warfare, whitewater, crocodiles, and some of the world's densest jungle.
Due to the lack of internet connectivity, I will not be blogging during the trip but, when possible, will post updates on Instagram and Twitter.
