What's it all about?

Isolated from modern tourism until very recently, Burma (now known as Myanmar)is a captivating land rich in untouched natural beauty and culture - the perfect backdrop for exceptional trekking.

As you make your way through the tribal highlands of the Shan Hills to Lake Inle, you will have the privilege of talking to our Band of Brothers and Sisters as they share a moving perspective of life changing injuries and the ways in which your fundraising is used.

How difficult is it?

Distances will vary as you can be trekking between 4-9 hours each day on paths through villages, farmland and jungle. You won't need to be an athlete, but training will make the trek more enjoyable.

Fundraising sounds daunting, where do I start?

The H4H Challenges Team will work closely with you throughout your fundraising journey and share helpful tips and advice every step of the way.

You will recieve a comprehensive fundraising guide to help you get started, along with monthly fundraising ideas straight to your inbox!
