Challenge level: 3 out of 5
|25 October - 2 November 2019||On Sale|
Join us in the October half term on a life changing five-day trek through Cambodia to help save children across the globe.
Raising money for a children's charity or hospice of your choice, trek through the beautiful and fascinating country of Cambodia and discover a culture a world apart from our own.
Starting and finishing in Siem Reap, the gateway to the ancient world famous Angkor Wat temple complex, you'll follow a stunning route through rice paddies, forests and jungles, past lakes and a magnificent waterfall and even to the peak of Kulen Mountain. Our bucket list trek finishes with a fascinating archaeological tour of Angkor Wat and its surrounding temples - by foot, of course!
Along the way, you'll get the amazing opportunity to camp in the grounds of a hidden jungle monastery, rest at a rustic home stay and get some extra insight into the Khmer culture, as you trek through remote villages and visit a local mountain school.
This enchanting adventure will be life changing in many ways, both for you as you achieve your own personal challenge and for the children across the globe, who will benefit from the incredible work carried out by the charities you choose to support. The challenge will be tough but the friendship and camaraderie along the way will be very special.

This challenge is not designed for Olympic athletes – it is designed for people looking for an amazing goal to train and get fit for. A number of the people who will take part on this challenge will have little or no fitness level when they sign up. This challenge is the perfect motivation to get fit, lose weight and have an experience of a lifetime.
Please don't be! The majority of people will sign up on their own and our Dream Challenges are renowned for the amazing camaraderie and life long friendships made as our groups take on these incredible feats together.
Once you've signed up for the challenge, we'll send you a link to a private Facebook group for everyone registered for Let's Trek for Children Cambodia 2019. Please feel free to use this space to swap questions, advice and updates with your fellow trekkers on your training and fundraising. You may also want to reach out to the fellow participants in this group to see if there's anyone in your local area you can meet up to train and fundraise with.
Absolutely not! One of the amazing things about the challenge is that people of all ages will come together to do something very special. The age range is likely to be from 18 to 75.
You will of course need a pair of walking boots. We will supply you with a comprehensive list of everything you will need to take on the event well before your departure date.
The accommodation will vary throughout this exciting challenge, from hotels to jungle temples to camping at monasteries and one night, we're lucky enough to rest in a rustic home-stay in the mountains.
Yes, of course! If you wish to extend your stay you will need to come out of our group flights (and of course we would deduct the cost from your balance).
In addition to paying your registration fee you will need to budget for your airport taxes and the fuel surcharge, personal travel insurance, visa, gratuities, optional tours and personal expenses.
You will need to take out your own personal travel insurance covering health, accident, loss and repatriation. Dream Challenges has a recommended policy, which we will send you details of. You can however take out your own insurance providing it covers you for a charity trek in Cambodia. You will need to apply for a visa to obtain entry into Cambodia, we will send you all the relevant information and forms in plenty of time.
The Dream Challenges team are here to help you achieve your challenge and will support you all the way. We are on hand from the minute you sign up to answer any questions that you may have about your training or the challenge itself. Once you have registered we will send you a realistic training programme to help you get fit for the event. The programme builds up gradually as the event gets closer.
