overview

Our challenging Burma trek takes you to the Shan highlands, across farmland, tea plantations and paddy fields, with some steep climbs to ascend. Over 5 days we hike more than 80km, passing through isolated hill tribe villages, observing the traditional way of living and staying in distinctive overnight accommodation in traditional, working monasteries. Our efforts are rewarded with picturesque views of valleys and hills filled with historic and religious marvels, wonderful temples and friendly locals. On the final day's trek, we descend to the beautiful Inle Lake, with its stilted villages, floating gardens and leg-rowing fisherman, where we can finally relax after our tough hike. We end the challenge in the capital, Yangon with colonial architecture and the impressive glimmering Shwedagon Paya. 

This fully-inclusive adventure in Burma begins as soon you register; you will receive a challenge pack with all the essentials you need to prepare. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, but we also offer pre-challenge briefings where you can meet our guides and leaders. As a team we will fly to Burma, ready to trek along this spectacular itinerary!
