At Action Cancer we rely on the thoughts and opinions of our loyal supporters to select our fundraising events. We are currently researching destinations for 2011 treks and would greatly appreciate if could give your thoughts on 5 possible destinations below. Leave a comment telling us which trek you would find most appealing and why! The two that prove to be the most popular will be selected for our 2011 challenges!
Kerela, India - Daily walking distances on this challenge will range from 10 -18 km. It is an amazing route incorporating trails through eucalyptus forests, grasslands and high altitude rainforests as well as an ascent up the second highest peak in the western Ghats – Meesapulimala and a visit to some of the worlds highest tea estates. There are great opportunities to spot indigenous wildlife such as the Nilgiri Tahr mountain goat and elephants. The last day will allow the group to enjoy free time in Kochi, a beautiful city located on a small island and home to the oldest church in India.
Cambodia - This trek will allow you to challenge yourself while also taking in some of Cambodia’s amazing scenery and landmarks including the great lake of Tonle Sap and the amazing temple complex of Angkor Wat. The average days walk will last 7 – 8hours and the route will take us through beautiful Paddy Fields, farmland and the local communities. Day 5 will see us passing through a number of local villages before climbing the beautiful Kulen Mountain and taking a break at the breathtaking Kulen Waterfall.
Little Tibet - We fly into Delhi before transferring to Pathankot in the foothills of the Indian Himalaya. The trek takes place in the shadow of the Daula Dhar and will take us to the residence of HH the Dalai Lama and many of the areas famous temples including the Kalachakra. The walk will begin in Dharamsala and go through pine and bamboo forests, along the banks of the Laund River, open meadows and an ascent to a typical Mountain Village where we will observe the typical way of life of the local shepherds. The last days trek is a short distance the trailhead at Bagsu Nag before our transfer to our hotel in Dharamsala. We will have some free time to explore the Tibetan Bazaar and the Monastery before the overnight train to Delhi.
Tanzania - This is an amazing route walking from crater to crater within the Rift Valley being lead by the Maasai Tribe and staying in local villages that only see groups of trekkers every 2-3months. The route runs between the areas craters which are home to permanent populations of wildlife that would otherwise migrate if it weren’t for the conditions within the crater. Each day will bring the opportunity to see pink flamingos, gazelles and Zebras. The highlight of trek is the midnight summit climb up the Old Doinyo Lengai volcano. This is an active volcano and so you should be able to see the hot steam geyshers and molten lava escaping from the top. The last day will be a full day safari in Tarangire National Park
Kenya - This trek goes through the heart of Kenya’s stunning Rift Valley encompassing some of Africa’s most beautiful natural scenery and wildlife including flamingos, zebra and giraffe. The route will take us past the magical Lake Magadi, the Ngong Hills and the Ewaso Ngiro River which is supplied with glacial water flowing down from Mount Kenya. Day 5 includes a lunch time tour of the Maasai town of Narosura where the local guides will explain the impact of modernisation on the Maasai tribe. Night times campsites will either be under the stars by an African bushfire or in a traditional Maasai village allowing the group to experience first hand the authentic Maasai culture. The last day will give a bit of free time in Nairobi.
The average days walk will be around 17km.
