Overview of Tafunsak Gorge Hike

Tafunsak Gorge is one of Kosrae's best hikes; and it takes place mainly along the river. The first part follows the main pipeline for about an hour until reaching a small water catchment area for the village of Tafunsak and then into the Gorge itself.

The 70-foot sheer walls and winding stream are picturesque, with hanging ferns and orchids protruding from the cliff face. Continue along for another 15 minutes until the end where the waterfalls are.

This hike is strenuous but suited to the young at heart. It is also wet and can be muddy, so old clothes and sturdy shoes are a must. Take a zip-lock bag for your camera, packed inside a backpack, hat, sunscreen, bottled water, and a change of clothes if you want to come back dry. Beware of heavy rain as the river is subject to flash flooding.

Recommended to use a local guide, but if you stay close to the water pipes and river the whole way up, you should be able to navigate into the gorge.

You can enter the gorge hike by parking near New Town Bakery.

Kay J. wrote about Valle Verde Mountain Resort:

"Valle Verde Mountain Resort is not your usual resort. You would be surprised to experience the beauty of nature where you do not have to go anywhere else, but all in one place. The relaxing spring, the beautiful gardens, the breathtaking views of the Lawi Bay, and the wonderful sunset will leave you in awe. The sights and sounds at Valle Verde will stay with you that you will always want to come back. Thanks to Cristy, the owner who was so accommodating and made our stay an enlightening one.
