Swilly’s Pohnpei Discovery

by | Dec 6, 2016 | Flights

Kaselehila (means hello in Pohnpei),

It has been an odd 5 days. We are still waiting on a swell, but we have had a lot of small fun days. Waiting for swell gave us a great chance to go and do the 6 waterfall trail. It’s a mind blowing valley that has 6 stunning waterfalls. In all my 12 years of coming to islands I had never done it. I have to say more fool me. This was one of the best things I have ever seen, a stunning waterfall in a lush tropical rainforest back drop. I think I said the word WOW a million times. There is a down side to this. You have to be a cross between a ninja warrior, Tri- athlete and mountaineer to get there. Saying this it’s worth the pain. Something else worth noting is the lack of any bugs or poisonous creatures. Not a snake to be seen. The island has a lack of any of these nasty things, which makes life really pleasant. Forecast is looking good for the start of December so fingers crossed.

Kalahngan (means thank you),
