UPDATE #4: Portals are back on intel
Path to the Osiris Stone
If you take a look at the intel map around KOLAN, you can find these portals listed, 1-17. Starting with “your path begins here” – https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=12.91254,100.76909&z=17&pll=12.91254,100.76909
Then continues up the mountainside to portal “Path to the Osiris stone #17” – https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=12.91957,100.77682&z=17&pll=12.91957,100.77682
In total, there appear to be 18 portals, You begin here and then 1-17. Perfect for a banner mission.
Currently, they appear to all have the same photo listed below, but we could probably assume they will be updated. Either with clues or standings. Possibly the winner of each leg? Or they could even change the banner to highlight the winner. It will be interesting to see what happens in the coming week.
Update #1: Agent Gnagsuaton posted on the Ingress Sub-Reddit with some portals he spotted off the coast of Ko Lan, “X marks the spot”, versions 1-3 for each faction. Looks like there will be some diving in the future for some agents.
You can find those portals, here: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=12.90012,100.77189&z=17&pll=12.90012,100.77189
Currently, these are sporting a new image but all the same for these 6 portals:
UPDATE #2: Rio5, AKA Ruth Shepherd is on the ground in Ko Lan as the intel image below shows that she has captured multiple portals.
Who is Rio5?

I manage the Ingress/GORUCK community on multiple online platforms such as Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Hangouts and Telegram. This includes creation of social media content, customer service interaction and community engagement. I bring 6 years experience within Niantic’s platforms as a subject matter expert.
I process feedback & create a unique gaming and physical challenge experience for the GORUCK & Ingress customer base, from the creation of unique events to remote scoring to on-site participation and quality control.
I act as liaison between Niantic, GORUCK, and the Ingress community to make sure everyone succeeds.
So it appears things are getting underway!
Niantic has removed the portals from intel . Could be sandboxed, could come back later. Guess we will have to wait and see.
Have you noticed anything else new on the Island of Ko Lan?
