Trekking Thailand

To celebrate 14 years of KHT's lifechanging work, 6 volunteers took part in the trek of a lifetime through the Karen community to not only experience the beautiful Karen landscape and see the impact of all that KHT has been achieving but also to raise all important funding.

Over 7 days the group trekked through some of the most remote mountainous areas of northern Thailand, spending 3 nights under the stars and 4 days in Karen villages. The group took in breathtaking landscapes and experienced first hand the generosity of the Karen people as they shared meals and houses 

"It has been a huge privilege to live with these people and to have a glimpse of their way of life. They are kind and gentle and never see trekkers but for the few from the Karen Hilltribes trust."

Along the way the team also were able to see the real impact of the projects KHT is helping to set up alongside the Karen community and meet the Karen staff who are working hard to ensure projects are bringing sustainable change. The trek was even led by Salahae who has worked closely with KHT since its inception, and heads up the Karen team in Thailand.

The £18000 raised from the keen walkers enabled 2 more villages by the end of 2014 to be provided with clean water and a better chance at life.
