About the event

This once-in-a-lifetime trek will take you from the unspoilt tribal highlands of the Shan hills to Lake Inle, one of Burma’s most memorable sights. You’ll explore so many different landscapes from jungle to farmland to quiet villages where oxen pull wooden ploughs.

Your trip ends with Bagan’s unforgettable plain of ancient temples, and Yangon’s incredible Shwedagon Pagoda – this is a challenge not to be missed! What’s more, every penny raised will help us to achieve our vision of a world free from preventable cancer.
