Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Rising 5,895 m from the East African plains, it is capped by Uhuru Peak – meaning “freedom” in Swahili. Standing on this frosty peak puts you on the Roof of Africa, where you can gaze down on the clouds, and up across acres of blue sky. Known as the Whisky Route, Machame follows a quieter path to the summit and offers a more authentic experience than the busier ‘Coca-Cola’ Marangu Route.
You will leave the bustling colonial town of Cuzco, wind up through quiet tracks in the shadows of the High Andes and reach the spectacular ruins of the ancient city of Machu Picchu. The 6-day Salkantay trek was named as one of the 25 Best Treks in the World by National Geographic Adventure Travel Magazine and takes the traveller through steamy rainforests, High Andean peaks and epic Peruvian landscapes.
Details: Trip date – 29th August 2018
Non-refundable registration fee: £195 for students

We will give you loads of help to reach the fundraising target, and we promise it isn’t as scary as it sounds.
The Great Wall of China
Perhaps the most famous of the ‘New 7 Wonders’ of the world, The Great Wall of China spans over 5,000 miles, each of its sections differing in age and construction. It is one of the few man- made structures visible from low orbit, stretching from Shanhaiguan in the East to Lop Nur in the West. The unique route that you’ll follow allows you to take in some truly breathtaking scenery, passing through landscapes little changed in several centuries. As you will be based in Beijing, this trip is the perfect opportunity not only to discover seldom-visited rural landscapes along the Great Wall, but also to immerse yourself in the bustling city life of Northern China.
