The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

On arrival in Vietnam, teams can spend a few days in Ho Chi Minh adjusting to Vietnamese life and culture.

Phase 2: Trek

Teams can choose up to 4 day jungle treks in the spectacular nature reserves around Lang Bian Mountain, north of Dalat. The Lang Bian
Mountain has 5 volcanic peaks and is an ideal place for studying the environment.

Phase 3: Project

In this valuable and rewarding phase teams can volunteer and take part in a variety of environmental or community based projects. Past examples include building playgrounds, concreting floors and repairing bridges. Teams will live within the remote hill communities in basic home-stays and experience their way of life. All projects are chosen in consultation with the community to ensure their needs are met.

Phase 4: Culture and Review

Whilst in Vietnam teams can visit Hue, the country’s ancient capital with its royal residences and elegant temples all situated on the banks of the Perfume River. Alternatively, explore the ancient town of Hoi An, where teams can purchase tailor made clothes and learn how to cook like a local!

Expedition Grade

Our Vietnamese and Cambodian adventure is graded as moderate. However, some more challenging days can be expected when trekking in central Vietnam. The fitter you are the more the more you will enjoy your expedition!
