Dalai Lama Himalayan Trek

From the madness of Delhi, to the beauty and tranquillity of the Indian Himalaya, this unique expedition is the perfect introduction to India.

The challenge follows the Uhl River, through the heart of the world’s highest mountain range in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan community are located. The region remains largely unvisited, which makes it a pristine and unspoilt area to explore via foot.

Charity Trek in Romania. See Transylvania's castle

Trek Transylvania

This unusual experience crosses the Transylvanian Alps, taking in huge mountains, rugged wilderness and small villages. We also visit King’s Rock National Park, home to the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project which shelters, as does the rest of the Carpathians, wolves, lynx and bears. Meanwhile, no trip to Transylvania would be complete without a stop at Dracula’s castle.

Avenue of the Volcanoes Charity Mountain Trek in Ecuador

Cotopaxi Summit - Avenue of the Volcanoes

This beautiful trek is not for the faint-hearted as it culminates in a magical midnight glacier climb. You will feel exhausted but elated as you rise with the sun, rewarded with priceless views over the Andes once you conquer Cotopaxi. The trek is at very high altitude, which means acclimatisation is vital. The trip will begin in Ecuador’s capital Quito, giving the group time to feel comfortable with their surroundings before venturing off on the challenge of a lifetime.

Difficulty

    Moderate

    This is the perfect challenge for someone who has perhaps never taken on a challenge event before, and is looking to test themselves on an active physical challenge. Although a moderate challenge might be culturally challenging, it will usually be in hotels/lodges rather than camping, and there will be no altitude involved. Training is necessary for all challenges. On a UK 'moderate' challenge, this grading would be perfect for someone who is looking to take their first steps into walking in the UK.

  • Challenging
    ?

    Challenging

    A 'challenging' trip will test someone who is moderately fit and has a spirit of adventure. You may have had some previous experience, but this is not necessary as long as the correct training is undertaken. A 'challenging' trip may involve some altitude, but this will be compensated by easier terrain and hiking conditions. On a UK 'challenging' challenge, you will be physically tested but the terrain is often on well-established routes.

  • Tough
    ?

    Tough

    A 'tough' trip should be undertaken by someone with previous experience and interest in the activity – whether biking or trekking. It will usually involve camping, and will certainly be in a remote environment, where facilities are not what you would expect at home. A tough challenge will test you both physically and mentally. Both cycle and treks will be hilly, and training is essential. On a UK 'tough' challenge, you should expect 10+ hours of exertion over demanding terrain.

  • Extreme
    ?

    Extreme

    Extreme challenges will involve altitude, and a great deal of endurance. These trips are not to be taken lightly, and will take place in extreme environments, without home comforts. They are usually undertaken by someone with previous experience in a mountain setting, but who wants to take their experience to the next level physically and mentally. Training is essential. On a UK 'extreme' challenge you should have previous experience in the mountains of the UK, as you will be tested to the limits.
