If you are ever on Pohnpei, you have to hike up Sokehs Rock. I still haven't done that. I went the wrong way and hiked up to the radio tower along the Sokehs Ridge. It was not a bad hike and is worth doing.
The hike can be found by taking the road onto Sokehs island and then heading straight when you get to the fork. From there the road heads up, up, up, and technically you could drive to the radio tower, but I don't recommend it.
There is a dramatic turn in the road and this would be a good place to park. You could actually park lower down the road, and get a little bit of a warm up before heading up to the steeper part of the road.
This is looking back down at the curve. Beyond on the other side of the water is the airport.
Turning around and looking up the "road." I wouldn't want to bring a car up here without 4wd.
At the end of the road is a short path which leads to the radio tower. I brought a lunch with me and sat at the top looking down at Kolonia.
Some of the local wildlife was interested in my sandwich and french fries. Prior to human contact, the only mammals on the islands of Micronesia were fruit bats. This is not a fruit bat.
The view was spectacular. This is the rock I want to climb next time. I'll have to pay better attention to the people giving me directions.
I could see down into the port and with my camera get a good view of the purse seiners. Notice how each boat has a helicopter. A helicopter for finding fish!
Looking away from the port towards the fishing "mother" ships. They are catching a lot of tuna in Micronesia.
Looking at Kolonia.
And the airport.
