This expedition is considered difficult as there are long walks over elevated terrain and up and down narrow jungle trails, camping in the jungle, some days are long hauls of seven to ten hours through difficult terrain in humid and hot weather. The Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea (PNG) offers an emotional and physical challenge, with pleasures and rewards for those who prepare properly. Don't leave it until its too late. You will need a minimum of at least 3 to 4 months to prepare, with more time an advantage.
