The Leron Bridge and the beautiful Leron plains with the rains in the distant valley. These are common sights along the Markham valley.

Driving up the steep Kassam pass with the Markham-Ramu valley intersection in the back ground. During the rains soft soil usually slides onto the road or sections of the road would sometimes slipp off making the pass impossible to climb.

You can feel the diferrences in temperature and humidity when you ascend the Kassam Pass. It is hot and humid at the bottom of the pass but as you go higher and higher up the pass it becomes cooler and cooler and less humid. The drive usually takes between 30minutes to 1hour depending on the type of vehicle you are in.

1.A drive up the Markham Valley with very localized areas of rain surrounded by sunshine.
2. Driving up the Kassam Pass to the Highlands of PNG means driving fom the lowlands into the cloud covered mountain area as the 2nd pix shows.

And in the land above the clouds lies not the 'Jack and Bean Stalk's land of the Giants' but the Korean built Yonki Hydro Electric Station.

Like the highway that is the life blood to the Highlands of PNG, this Hydro station provides power to 60 percent of the Highlands region including Lae City and Madang.

The water for the dam is supplied by the Ramu River high above the mountains beyond the township of Kainantu (30 minutes by road from the dam)
