Day 2: Charter flight to Kokoda – Trek to Deniki

Bus transport to airfield for charter flight to Kokoda.  Inspect the site of the first battle on the Kokoda plateau, the memorials and local museum.  Trek to the base of the Owen Stanley Range at Hoi village via the rubber plantations our soldiers escaped through after they were forced out of their defensive position at Kokoda.  Pass via Palm Oil plantations which have been established since the war then commence the climb towards the campsite at Deniki.  Along the way you will pass abandoned gardens which have been overgrown with choko vines.
