UK trek group to return

A UNITED Kingdom (UK) based volunteer group Trek Force, will return to Papua New Guinea in November to explore more of PNG’s exciting sites, The National newspaper reports.

The group left last month after completing a two-month tourism trekking project along the Black Cat Trail in the Morobe province.

Black Cat Trail extends from Wau to Salamaua.

While trekking, the group also provided basic health and education services to the locals along the way.

Trek Force leader Dr Tom Sheddon said Black Cat turned out to be a very challenging feat for the young volunteers, most of who were in their early 20s.

Dr Sheddon said his team also did jungle survival training, trekking and diving and were looking forward to returning to PNG in November.
