PNG Highlands Highway
sometimes known as the Okuk Highway
via Papua New Guinea

To travel between Lae and Goroka and further inland it is necessary to travel along the Okuk Highlands Highway. The highway is the lifeline to the people and businesses of the highlands and many trucks travel the road daily.

The Highway snakes through the mountains and valleys often turning back on itself.
