The challenge

  • Uncover the secrets of magical Myanmar
  • Encounter local Burmese villagers, still practising the traditions of their ancestors
  • Overnight in traditional Buddhist Burmese monasteries
  • Explore the wonders of the beautiful Inle Lake
  • A guide-led tour of the city of Yangon, formerly Rangoon

Arguably South East Asia’s best kept secret, Myanmar is a mystical blend of unique culture, regal history, jaw-dropping views and a magnificent temple-lined landscape.

This challenge ventures to the beautiful Inle Lake through the Shan Hills. Here we trek for five days through mountainous tribal villages and staying in Buddhist monasteries along the way.

The itinerary includes a full day at Inle Lake, one of Burma’s most beautiful attractions. Explore the lake by private boat, passing villages on stilts inhabited by the local Intha people who still practise the ancient traditions of their forefathers.

The challenge ends in the modern, bustling city of Yangon (formerly Rangoon).

There are not the words to describe what a fantastic experience this trek has been; the warmth of the people, exploring monasteries and villages, scenery so breath-taking it makes you cry. The support of the trek leaders and the friends made have made this an unforgettable life changing trip and I return to the UK a far richer person.

Charity Trek in Burma

Charity Challenge has provided a way of experiencing Burma that gives a true impression of nature and gives an insight into how people in Burma live in rural communities.

Charity Trek in Burma

Beautiful unspoilt Burma exceeded all my hopes for the trip. Not only have I gained some great friends from fellow trekkers, we've shared the "undulating" countryside & accompanying emotions. It's been liberating to leave behind modern life and return to the simple things, to be welcomed by strangers willing to invite us into and share their world.
