Chuuk

 
Chuuk The islands within teh Chuuk atoll are crowned with natural beauty. The outer barrier reef is punctuated with idyllic sand spits dotted with coconut palms. The high islands in the central lagoon rise into the blue island skies. Lush vegetation and simple living punctuate the lives of the lagoon. Fishing, weaving and tending garden supplant the subsistence lives that many sustain on their individual islands. It is not unusual to see women waist deep in the mangroves hunting for a special delicacy or men walking the reefs by torchlight at night looking for baby octopus. Boat makers create vessels high in the hills of the inner islands and take them down to sea when finished. Open hearth fires are still used to cook th...
 

Mostakia

 
Mostakia Mostakia became independent in 1974, after nearly two centuries as a combined British and Greek colony. The islands are first thought to have been settled on in the 8th century BC by explorers of the Byzantine Empire, and then later rediscovered by the British Admiral William Jameson in 1750. Democratic rule was interrupted by two military coups in 1977, caused by concern over a government perceived as dominated by the African community (descendants of contract laborers brought to the islands by the British in the 19th century).

Pohnpei

 
Pohnpei Pohnpei is the largest and tallest island in the FSM. Its peaks get plenty of rainfall annually and this creates more than 40 rivers that feed the lush upper rain forest. Pohnpei's waterfalls range from pleasant to spectacular, creating a refreshing and breathtaking experience for those venturing to the base of the falls. There are even camping areas at some sites for those who want to hear the tumble of the water as they sleep under the tropical sky. The streams are great for cooling off after a hike in the hills. Pohnpei is famous for its energetic dances and also for the relaxing drink sakau, a kava-like brew. Watching sakau being prepared is an experience unique to Pohnpei. The pepper plant is taken from the w...
 

Kosrae

 
Kosrae Kosrae has been described as an unblemished garden of flowers, palms and citrus trees. And the clear, clean seas around it are home to healthy and diverse coral reefs. The air is fresh on Kosrae and adventure beckons those wanting to truly get away from it all. Steeped in the history of many decades, the island is ripe for exploration. There are mysterious ancient ruins of the forefathers of the Kosraean people. World War II artifacts, cave systems and remnants abound and there's even a pirate ship sunk beneath the waves. A hike up to Kosrae's famous Mount Omar will take the explorer past a series of gushing waterfalls pouring through the lush Kosrae jungle. The famous mangroves of the island present a world of oppo...
