Sokehs Rock, Pohnpei

(4.8/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Car down the grassy path to walk, about 45 minutes. Middle placed Japan army during the second world war anti-aircraft gun rusted remains. Summit Observatory as to have, you can surround the island atolls, Pohnpei airport overlooking the town of Colonia.

  • It is a steep climb to the top, but well worth the effort to get the view at the end and to see on the way the various guns and other machinery that has been left there many years ago.  more »
