In March 2018, St. Gemma's Hospice will be taking a team of explorers on the trek of a lifetime to discover the untouched ancient world of South East Asia. You will get to experience the rich culture of Cambodia; from the brilliant green rice paddies and local villages filled with thatched stilted houses, to the jungles dotted with Buddhist temples and ruins.
This 9 day adventure will see you trekking 85km over hills, through valleys and dense forest, ascending to the upper plain of the Kulen Mountain and camping overnight in the wilderness; as well as visiting the magnificent 12th
Century Angkor Wat temple, the Bayon Temple with the mysterious giant faces and Angkor Thom.
St. Gemma’s bespoke trek to Angkor Wat in Cambodia will depart from London on Saturday 3rd
March and return on Sunday 11th
March 2018. Anybody can take part in this brand new challenge and throughout the trip you will be looked after and supported by a Challenge leader.
