Sokehs Rock, Pohnpei

#2 of 6 in Parks in Pohnpei
A rock formation peering over its namesake peninsula, Sokehs Rock remains one of Micronesia's landmark geographic features and serves as a major challenge for adventurous hikers. Allegedly created by a magician ages ago, the rock offers sweeping views of a lagoon and northern islands. As you navigate your way up a well-defined trail, look for abandoned buildings and old cannons dating back to World War II. Persistent bird watchers often report spotting the short-eared owl, a shy and threatened species. Don proper shoes for this demanding hike, and bring some bug repellent. Make your Pohnpei itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • I had a little more schedule in the afternoon, so I went there on my mind. Take a taxi to the middle, tell them the time of pick-up, and start climbing the mountain! About 1.5 hours if there is confidence in the foot, my home was just right in two hours. As with Pompeii in general, there were no mosquito-like insects in the forest. Sunburn measures may be more important. It is footwear that failed. I was licking. Don't go with sandals! It is a mountain climb ing firmly! Be sure to wear athletic shoes. I'm tired, and i'm afraid to skate. Especially, it is dangerous to go back. Strictly prohibited sandals. It is difficult to understand several places and the road on the way. It doesn't always go up, it's a few places along the way, and it's going down a little bit. Like home, get uneasy there and don't go sideways! (I'm lost. Lol. In the case of our home, good luck? I was able to dance on the regular road, and i said to the foreigner, "It's not that way, it's over here. We'll be at the top in five minutes! Good luck because the scenery is the best! ...

  • From many places in Kolonia and from the boat - even from the airport - you can see this impressive rock formation. However, the German Road is difficult to find, also the waterfall that is supposed to be on this peninsula. There are also missing signs, because from here the colonial liberation struggle started and many inhabitants of this island were victims of the re-enactment of the German colonial power. It offers a wonderful view of Kolonia and the airport from a side street. There are regular cars to Sokeh, but it has been some time to plan.
