Sokehs Ridge and Rock are iconic spots for anyone visiting Pohnpei. The hike up to the Ridge is steep at times, but once you are up, the view is great from the communication tower, so carry your camera. If you don't pay close attention, you will walk right past World War II Japanese guns. The Ridge is one of the... More

If you have the time, it is a great scenic drive to take in some sights. The rock is spectacular and you can always position yourself on the island by knowing where it is.

Very beautiful. Very exhilarating. Very dangerous. Only go in good weather and only if you are fit and adventurous. The rest of Sokehs island is worth a drive around and further exploration at the Ridge and the two little waterfalls.

There are no really trail to hike through, you will have to try find you own way. A nice short hike, and worthy if ur not afraid to get a little dirty. There is suppose to be some a way to the top but I didn't find it.

Excellent day trip. Tough hike with basic rock climbing at some points. There used to be an old electricity power pipe which we used a railing to climb up the steeper portions of the hike. Great to sit up there on an overcast day watching the jet wash off thee planes flying out.

Climbed Sokehs Rock in 1970 while a Peace Corps Volunteer. It is the Diamond Head of Micronesia. It dominates the harbor and city of Kolonia. You can not miss it when you land at the airport. Want to go back again!

This Is the first thing that catches your eye once your plane approaches Pohnpei Airport and if you are not disembarking in Pohnpei ( while the plane is being serviced) then I suggest to go down the plane and have a look at this piece of rock jutting up in the mountain while walking towards the pre departure area.

The hike is demanding, but a nice exercise ! Many overlook places to catch gorgeous views! Be sure to wear bug repellent!!! There are bars living in the old Japanese bunkers!!! Ahhhhh! It scared the heck out of me!!! Loved the experience!

WOW!! What a hike to get there, a tough one. But well worth the exercise. The view is spectacular. For all hiking enthusiast, come here and go to the WWII canons on the otherside..
