BORNEO SANDAKAN DEATH MARCH TOURS & TREKS

  May, August & November tour dates - This tour begins at Sandakan and follows the true Death March route to Ranau. Ending at Labuan Island where the POW’s are buried in the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery. Unfortunately here we have yet another horrific, untold story. The Sandakan Death March has been a “Conspiracy of Silence” until recent years. The story needs to be told. This trek is the next step that all Australians who have walked with us along the Kokoda Trail should consider taking. The  trek should be considered strenuous. A high level of fitness is required. Whilst the terrain of the death march is not unduly mountainous, the conditions can often be extreme – you will be walking in high temperatures, often in full sun and  with a high level of humidity. The trek is vehicle supported and provides an exit option each day for trekkers not wishing to undertake walking the whole track. Contact Guidepost Tours. (PNGT)
