The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

Teams will fly into Surabaya and transfer to Malang, where they will begin to acclimatise to the heat and humidity. Spend a couple of days here and prepare for the next phase of your expedition.

Phase 2: Trek

Indonesia is host to dramatic volcanic mountains and lush tropical jungle. The team could spend an overnight, learning basic camp and survival skills in the beautiful countryside surrounding Malang, home to many stunning waterfalls. In the Bromo Tennger Semeru National Park the team can choose from a variety of treks. This region is home to some of the most dramatic and iconic volcanic scenery in the world. You could trek to the summit of Mt. Semeru, the highest volcano on Java, or see the sunrise behind Mt. Bromo with plumes of white smoke teeming from its crater.

Phase 3: Project

The team can participate in a community based project, helping to develop the local villages infrastructure. Past examples include rebuilding houses, building community forest shelters or helping to repair community houses and teaching English. Staying in the community will give the team a real understanding of the local culture. All projects are chosen in consultation with the community to ensure their needs are met.

Phase 4: Culture & Review

Indonesia is a melting pot of religions and cultures and no trip will be complete without visiting the majestic Buddhist temple of Borobudur, the largest single religious temple in the world. The team can also try a yoga class on the white sandy beaches of Bali and if you feel daring enough, take a trip to Rinca Island to see fascinating and magnificent Komodo Dragons.
