Trek Vietnam 2024

Trek for compassion. Trek for care.

Palliative care is a specialized type of care that provides comfort and support to people facing a life-limiting illness or approaching the end of their life. It addresses physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs, helping patients and their families navigate this difficult time with dignity and respect. Providing care to people in the community who are approaching death is crucial not only for the individual’s well-being but also for their loved ones and the wider community. It is a humanistic approach that recognizes the value of every individual and ensures they are treated with compassion during their final days.

Several organizations are dedicated to providing palliative care to people approaching the end of their lives, and one such organization is Dorothy House Hospice Care. This hospice care provider offers a range of services and support to patients and their families, allowing them to live with dignity and comfort in their final days.

In addition to providing palliative care services, many hospice care providers organize fundraising events to support their work. One such event is the Trek Vietnam 2024, a charity trek organized by Dorothy House Hospice Care to raise funds and awareness for their services.

Looking for your next challenge? If you are 18 or over, our 10-day trip to Northern Vietnam could be for you!

This trip is operated by The Different Travel Company (ATOL 6706) for Dorothy House (Registered Charity No. 275745).

Where will the trek take place?

Our Vietnam trek will take you off the beaten track and into the remote and beautiful hills of Northern Vietnam in the Pù Luông Nature Reserve area. Staying at local stilt house accommodations each night will give you an authentic insight into the lifestyle of the ethnic minority people who live in the area.

What does the trek involve?
The trek is graded moderate to challenging. You will be trekking for 5 consecutive days, over varying and sometimes challenging terrain. You will cover approximately 15-20km per day which will take around 6-7 hours.

As part of the Vietnam trek, you will spend time in the Mai Chau region working at a local community project – based in a small palliative care unit at a local hospital. Depending on the most urgent need in the local area at the time of departure, tasks are likely to include painting, decorating, gardening and other hands-on refurbishment type tasks. No experience is necessary.

You will be accompanied by professional English-speaking local guides and support staff. These guides have excellent knowledge of hiking and culture in the region and are first-aid trained. You will also be accompanied by an excellent support team at the community project. A Different Travel Company tour manager will also accompany you on the trip who will support you and make your challenge memorable.
