It’s possible to walk and raft from Simbai to the Ramu River base camp in five to six days. This route, developed by the Simbai villagers, represents a fantastic opportunity to experience something truly unique. Guides are essential (K50 per day) and porters are optional (K30 per day).

The Ramu River is one of PNG’s great rivers and its broad valley is sugar-cane and cattle country. The Ramu Sugar Refinery is a major industrial development, designed to make PNG self-sufficient in sugar.
