London--John Dorken, Honorary Secretary of the charity Medical Aid and Relief for the Children of Chechnya, and director of the UK-based British Rubber Manufacturers' Association is planning to undertake another sponsored trek in support of the charity.
Dorken is planning a three-week walking trip in the Andes mountains, starting on the Inca trail, then skirting the highest mountain in South East Peru - Ausangate - described as 'high, tough and cold'. Dorken's route involves 7 days walking; most of it, and all of the camp sites, lie above 4400 metres and four high passes are crossed, the highest being 5165 metres
Three years ago Dorken and his daughter, Marina, walked above the Tibetan monasteries in Sikkim up to the base of the world's third highest mountain, Kanchenjunga, reaching almost 5000 metres, and for their efforts MARCCH received close to Â£9000.
