Burma is a beautiful country of jungles, mountains and fertile plains, with graceful pagodas dotted across the diverse landscapes. Cycling is the perfect way to discover the friendly culture of this land almost untouched by tourism.
From Mandalay we head for Bagan’s ancient temples, before heading east through hot dry lowlands, passing small villages, teak plantations and rice paddies before tackling the long winding road up into cooler jungle-clad hills. A great descent brings us to the shores of Lake Inle, where we have time to relax and see the local way of life.
- 10 days
- Grade 2 – Walking is on good dirt or grass paths through plantations, grassland and open ridges. Terrain is generally up or down, there is very little flat, and there are some steep sections which can be very demanding in the heat.
- The registration fee costs £299 and the fundraising target is £3,450.
Kerala in southern India is renowned for its wonderful palm-fringed beaches and the rich tropical landscape of its interior. Our trek takes in the lush green forests, cardamom-scented hills and photogenic tea plantations of the Western Ghats. The cool mountain air is perfect for trekking these wonderful hills; afterwards we head down to the tropical palm-fringed coastline, known for its sandy white beaches, fascinating fishing villages and backwater houseboats.
- 3 days
- Grade 3 – The full 24-mile walk should take approximately 11-13 hours for fit and strong walkers; others should allow longer. It is not an event which should be considered without proper training. You will trek approximately 24 miles on this trip overall.
- The registration fee costs £75 and the fundraising target is £490.
This region was shaped by glaciers many thousands of years ago, and there are plenty of geological landmarks – striking limestone outcrops and unusual rock formations – to pique our interest as we walk. We will also see the famous Ribblehead Viaduct enroute, part of the scenic Settle to Carlisle railway line.
This is an extremely tough event over hilly landscapes; at 24 miles it forms an enormous challenge for walkers.
