aussie is on a distinguished road
As you will see in this photograph, personal porters are always there to help. Chris reaches out and holds onto the back of Bev's backpack to help break her fall as she climbs down a steep embankment. If you look carefully you will also see tree roots which are pretty much the norm on the trail. If you put your foot incorrectly on a slippery tree root, be prepared to slip and fall. For me this was one of the hardest things always looking for correct placement to make sure I did not fall over. As for our Kokoda guys, they seem to be able to walk on anything and still keep their balance:
