Varirata National Park, National Capital District, Papua New Guinea

11:59 pm Papua New Guinea, Travel

The Adventist Accreditation Association committee visited PAU from 21-25 August 2008, and so it was appropriate to take them on a tour to the nearby national park.  Although it drizzled most of the afternoon, we still had a great time.  Below is a selection of photos, which again highlights the beauty of Papua New Guinea.

The following map shows our trip overlayed on Google Earth.  The straight line at the end is due to the road being completely under trees, which resulted in a straight line to the point where we came out of the forest near the lookout.

If you wish to manipulate the map yourself, install Google Earth and then open the following file:

.  This will allow you to zoom in and review the track in detail.

The following shows the approximate elevations for the trip (keep in mind, that the GPS algorithms favour horizontal positioning over vertical positioning – hence the slight differences).
