Sole Challenge and the Indo Trek team have been jointly involved in developing and executing charity treks across the UK, Indonesia and the Gobi Desert of Mongolia.
See some examples of past treks below. All treks can be tailored to your group requirements and new locations across Indonesia and further afield are being developed each year.
Fancy a completely different location? Then please tell us. Indo Trek has built up some strong partnerships in the past and would be more than happy to look at future joint ventures with other carefully selected expedition providers such as SandBaggers Expedition Services.
In 2009 and 2011 Accord Hospice fundraisers from across Scotland undertook two extreme challenges.
In 2009 the Team tackled the extreme heat and arid conditions of the Gobi Desert, Mongolia. Their epic trek took them through high mountain passes, energy-sapping desert planes and the highest sand dunes in Asia. On completion of this trek the team still had enough energy to complete a community project, a feature of many of our treks, with the UK based Mongolian charity – Yamaa Trust. The team had a fantastic experience helping construct a traditional Mongolian ‘Ger,’ to be utilised as an orphanage.
In 2011 the Accord Hospice team took on another challenge, this time into the jungle and mountains of Indonesia. The team hiked on tropical, sun-drenched beaches before the three day challenging ascent of Mount Rinjani (3700ft), which still has an active volcano within the crater lake.
On completion of this epic trek the Team did yet another community project in partnership of the Indonesian charity – Redemption Drop. A disused building was converted into a community medical centre for use by mountain village communities.
Gobi and Indo Utd
In 2011 and 2013 expeditions to both Mongolia and Indonesia were undertaken by a group of Rangers and Celtic football fans who came together with the mutual aim of raising money for charitable causes – Davie Cooper Centre, MND Scotland and the Michelle Henderson Cervical Cancer Trust.
Fronted by ex-Rangers and Scotland football legend Willie Henderson, the teams took on the challenges of both the Gobi desert and the Ujung Kulon jungles and volcanoes of Java.
