Lonely Planet's "Walking Guides" cover bushwalking and trekking routes throughout the world. Written by experienced trekkers, the guides are designed for anyone who believes that the best way to see a country is on foot, whether they are independent trekkers or in organized groups. Each guide includes walks of varying difficulty. Features of this series include: detailed day-by-day route descriptions; information on the culture and natural history of the region; what to take and where to get supplies on the way; comprehensive health and first-aid sections; clear, reliable maps; information on safety, preparation and planning, equipment and hiring porters; and advice on the best time of year to undertake each walk. In many parts of Papua New Guinea there are only two forms of transportation - flying and walking. If the latter appeals there is no limit to the possibilities, with hundreds of treks criss-crossing the country and rarely a day's walk between villages. This guide, now in its second edition, contains the most up-to-date information on every aspect of walking in this region.
