Story

So….Lying in the heart of old Indochina, the small country of Cambodia is home to dazzling green rice-paddies and jungles dotted with temples and ruins, villages of thatched stilted houses, and small towns where Buddhist temples nestle amongst graceful French colonial buildings. My challenge starts in Siem Reap, the ancient capital of the mighty Khmer Empire. Ill trek the hills, valleys and dense forests of the surrounding area, ascending to the upper plain of Kulen Mountain. This region is rich not only in history, but in beautiful landscapes and the rural way of life, little changed for centuries. The trek will be a hot and
dusty, but the famous smiles of this remarkably friendly country will carry us on to our finish pointat the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat.

It will be a total distance of 87km in 4 days, camping along the way.

Last time I did a trek for Befrienders Highland, I did the Grand Canyon in Memory of my Grandfather John Curley, This time I will be dedicating my Trek to my Grandmother Shirley Curley. With experience of dementia in my family I can personally vouch for the work that Befrienders does and the difference they make to people lives.
