Sokens Rock is striking simply because the rest of the island's hills are covered with greenery. You can easily see it from the airport. I drove around Sokens Island trying to get a better view of it, but it's really not worth the drive.

Nice short hike to the radio tower on the Soekhs ridge to see Japanese WWII anti aircraft guns. Views of the bay and airport are amazing. Great day hike.

It's worth the hike up (you can either take a taxi to get you to the end of the paved road or walk, then walk the rest of the way) - very peaceful and breathtaking views

We did not climb the rock. We did hike the ridge. Very beautiful. Made it to the TV tower. What a view. We could see the entire airport. The sun was hitting the water just right. Sparkling array of colors far out along the reef....More

A beaut walk upto the Japanese war ruins and evidence of the tunnels built by the locals. You can catch a local cab for $1 to the base of the hill and then follow the road/path upto the top. Very good views and photo opportunities...More

It is a steep climb to the top, but well worth the effort to get the view at the end and to see on the way the various guns and other machinery that has been left there many years ago.

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...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.
