Trans Timor Trek 2017 - A world first expedition
Timor-Leste (East Timor) is one of the world’s youngest nations. It is a nation that has been largely under explored. In late July 2017, Earth Trails Expeditions led a worlds first expedition, crossing Timor from the northern beaches to the southern beaches via the highest feature over 13-days. This was an off grid, off track expedition that toiled through thick jungle and subzero mountain peaks to raise money for the East Timor Hearts Fund.
East Timor Hearts Fund ( https://www.easttimorheartsfund.org.au ) is Australia’s only medical aid charity dedicated to providing life-saving heart surgery in Australia for young people from Timor-Leste.
