Our 4000 meter treks have started up again, and our first after the pandemic is Mt Victoria (4038m)

Papua New Guinea has only 12 recognised 4000 meter peaks. We know this number is an understatement and we are setting out to expand this list and to open the highlands of Papua New Guinea to adventure travelers. We were one of the first groups to do the full traverse of Mt Wilhelm (PNG’s highest peak), we were the first to traverse Mt Giluwe (Australasia’s highest volcano) and the first to traverse Mt Kabangama. In 2019 we attempted  Mt Sarawaget (4121 meters), north of Lae, only to fall short on what had to be one of the toughest traverses any of us had done before.

Mt Victoria can be seen from the Kokoda Track. On a clear morning at Efogi, you can see her summit, glistening. There is actually a trail from Mt Victoria to the central part of the Kokoda Track.

At just over 4000 meters, Mt Victoria is the lowest of the 4000 meter peaks. But it is a tough trek. Only done by a few people.

There is no real set itinerary. Once we reach above 3600 meters, the landscape will open up into grasslands. This will enable us to make plans to either stick to the itinerary or if time and terrain permits, try our luck at other ridges and peaks not yet recognised.

If you are up for adventure off the beaten track (if there is a track), then why not join us on this wonderful trek into the PNG high country?

“…it struck me how little we knew of what lay on the other side of the range. We knew neither where we would come out nor the name of the first village we would find.”

Fear Drive My Feet – Peter Ryan

The following is what Jon O’Connor has said about our other 4000-meter treks.

“The No Roads 4000m Peaks Exploratory Expeditions have to rate among the great walks of PNG.  These have it all. The trekking is challenging, the scenery is stunning. An initial approach, usually through cultivated land and villages, gives way to pristine jungle and sheer-sided gorges. Multiple river crossings are achieved by cleverly constructed log bridges. More jungle, mud and steep slopes lead to dizzying ascents along razorback ridges and through ancient moss forests.

As you climb higher the landscape is dramatic and spectacular. Above the tree line is an untouched wilderness rarely seen by the European eye. Wild remote 4000m peaks tower over beautiful alpine lakes, sacred, revered and untouched. Ancient ferns emerge from the mist as solitary sentinels in a primeval, cloud laced, alpine landscape. Tussock grasslands are punctured through with a myriad limestone sink holes. Rocky mountain tops give uninterrupted 360-degree views from coast to coast and over a vast and extraordinary mountainous landscape. Valleys plunge abruptly several thousand metres to raging rivers, and back to primordial jungle.  A precipitous descent will lead down to traditional tribal villages, inhabited by warm, friendly people enthusiastic in their welcome.

Few people have had the privilege to explore this rugged terrain. These are tough, demanding walks with remarkable rewards.”

This is a mostly camping trip. While in town we will stay at the Hilton in Port Moresby, once we are on Victoria we will be staying in tents. 

On the trail, we will have shared tents. We will also have 1 large meal tent where we will eat our breakfast and dinners if the weather outside is inclement. We will, of course, try to make each campsite as comfortable as possible with some great meals and views you can only get at 4000 meters above sea level.

“The top of the range was a semi-plateau some six or eight miles wide, a scene of utter desolation. A howling wind, with nothing to break its force, lashed us pitilessly as we struggled forward. The great limestone outcrops seemed like bones poking through the crust of the earth.”

Fear Drive My Feet – Peter Ryan

Above 3300 meters the terrain opens up into open savannah. Giant waterfalls and huge high altitude lakes dot the landscape, while the six 4000 meter peaks loom above, lined up like sentinels, guarding this ancient land and all its mysteries.

Frequently Asked Questions

Being an exploration trek our Victoria summit trek differs in several ways from other trips. In particular, there is no set itinerary other than arrival and departure date. However, there are some common questions for these types of treks. 

How difficult is the trek?

This is a difficult trek and is in our category 4 Extreme Hot category. What does all this mean? You are going to need to train both physically and mentally for this Trek. The hike up to the summit and to the plateau is steep and long. Then it is a long trek to the base of the summits. From there we are making it up as we go, checking the best routes and peaks to climb. So flexibility is the key to this trek.

Is it safe?

We will be using the services of the people from along the trail. They will ensure our safety on the mountain. We also have a satellite phone with direct contact with our PNG team in Port Moresby in case we need an evacuation. This can be done quite quickly as Port Moresby airport has several helicopters which service the villages and their surroundings.

Can I employ someone to carry my gear?

Yes of course. The cost is $780. You will still need to carry your own day pack, however.
