The Expedition

Phase 1: Acclimatisation

Teams will fly into Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam where they will begin to acclimatise to the heat and humidity of south-east Asia. Spending a few days teams could visit one of the many pagodas, such as Jade Emperor, or try the fascinating museums displaying stories of Ho Chi Minh’s turbulent past.

Phase 2: Trek

In Vietnam, teams could trek around the spectacular Lang Bian Mountain in the region of Dalat where they might be surprised at the cool temperatures and beautiful pine forests, those after a challenge might like to choose to summit Radar Top a 2169m.
The Cardamom Mountains in Cambodia offer teams an altogether different experience, combining skills in survival camps with river boat crossings through jungle and past waterfalls.

Phase 3: Project

In this valuable and rewarding phase teams can volunteer and take part in a variety of community based projects working with our charity partner Better Lives. Past examples include creating family gardens, building playgrounds and animal shelters and working in schools with breakfast clubs. All projects are chosen for their sustainability in consultation with the community, to ensure their needs are met.

Phase 4: Culture & Review

A boat trip on the Mekong Delta offers the team both an amazing array of birds and fauna, and also a brilliant way to travel into Cambodia. A visit to Cambodia would not be complete without spending a day exploring the spectacular and vast temple complex of Angkor Wat. A sunrise or sunset visit will be unforgettable. In Phnom Penn teams could visit the historical and moving sights of Tuol Sleng Museum and Choeung Ek.

Facts

Terrain

Ranges from jungles and rainforests, to lush countryside, mountains and rivers.

Weather

April to October is the summer monsoon season with hot, humid weather across the country. In Dalat the higher altitude means much cooler temperatures can be expected.

Culture

The predominant religion in Cambodia is Buddhism, yet there is also a historical Hindu influence which can still be recognised today. Culture and civilisation in Vietnam have been influenced by the Chinese, which is reflected in the fused religious beliefs of Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism.
