Go the Distance

To celebrate International Women’s Day, and in support of Project Pari by Zonta Club of Singapore, we invite you to join us to run or walk a 2.4km route and collectively achieve a total distance of 50km or more within 3 hours!

The idea is to get active and at the same time create awareness about Project Pari and its mission – to inspire and enable young women from lower-income families to attain a positive outlook of the future and to become responsible contributors to society.

All you have to do is to turn up at Bishan Park 2 (Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park) to walk or run a loop of 2.4km. On an average, it takes about 15-20 mins to run-jog a 2.4km loop and about 30-45 mins to walk the same distance. To achieve a distance of 50km in 3 hours, we need collective effort.  We either have more than 20 participants to run a 2.4km distance (we hope the turn out is good), if fewer, some participants can help by going for more than one loop.

Our Target
We target to achieve a collective distance of 50km or more, in 3 hours (180mins). We invite you to appeal to your friends to support by making a small donation to Project Pari – donations of S$10, S$50, S$100 or any amount is welcome.

Project Pari supports less-privileged girls through their secondary school journey providing them with a monthly allowance, life skills course, fun activities and mentorship. It takes only $800 to support a Project Pari’s girl for 1 year. This $800 for 1 year can potentially help empower and enrich the girl’s future! We hope, through the support of this event’s participants and the public, we can raise the fund to support at least 1 girl for 1 year. Click here to DONATE

Your Motivation
By participating in this event, you get a chance to meet like-minded people who support healthy lifestyle and giving back to the community in a simple way. In light of the current Covid-19 situation, going outdoors to exercise is one of the best ways to keep healthy (therefore, if you are unwell on the event day, do stay home to rest).

Start Trekking to Beautiful Mt Hehuan

Mt Hehuan was our inaugural trek for our Start Trekking initiative and has continued to be popular.

The beautiful mountain scenery and friendly terrain is suitable not only for beginners but also for families or anyone who want to embark on a short scenic trek.

The trek covers four peaks above 3000m with an overnight stay in a local hotel in town. At the end of each day’s trek, there’s a sumptuous dinner, hot shower and nice comfortable bed to look forward to.

Every year, we schedule our Mt Hehuan trek during the Dragon Boat Festival. Our participants will get to enjoy delicious Taiwanese rice dumplings!

Keep a lookout for our talk on Mt Hehuan to be held on 21 Feb in collaboration with Taiwan Tourism Bureau, Singapore.

Our next Start Trekking to Mt Hehuan is on 18-21 Jun 2020. For package details, refer to our website at http://aceadventure.com.sg/even…/taiwan-mt-hehuan-hehuanshan

Black Bear Forest Movie Screening – 18 Oct 2019

A touching documentary about the protection of Formosan Black Bears in Taiwan, by Lee Hsiang-Hsiu 2016, Taiwan.

Dafen, the heart of Yushan National Park, is a place abundant in wildlife and indigenous culture. With the assistance of an indigenous hunter, a female ecologist started her journey searching for Formosan Black Bears in 1998. In the midst of this wilderness, they gradually developed a deep and sincere companionship. Together with copious research, the secret of the Taiwan Black Bear is thus revealed.

Ace Adventure Expeditions’ first movie screening together with Toa Payoh Adventure Club and Toa Payoh Central CC Youth Club.

The aim of the movie screening is to create greater awareness on the protection of wildlife and a deeper understanding of the culture of the indigenous people in Taiwan.

We often meet the indigenous people, who work as guides, porters, cook or hut crew, and see warning signs of the black bears while mountain climbing in Taiwan. This touching documentary will help us appreciate and respect the mountains more, that mountains are often inextricably intertwine with tradition culture/beliefs and wildlife.

Women On Mountains

Women on Mountains is an Ace Adventure Expeditions’ initiative to encourage women to challenge themselves through mountain climbing and to support a charity cause to help other women.

This 19-28 Dec 2018, we will have a team of women heading to climb Kilimanjaro! The trek leader is Sim Yihui,  co-founder and co-leader of an all-women’s team from Singapore to climb Mt Everest via the South side in Nepal.

Included in the Women on Mountains’ package cost is a $100 contribution to Project Pari. Each Women on Mountains’ participant will also received a Women on Mountains’ t-shirt and a copy of the Singapore Women Everest Team’s book.

Through Women on Mountains’, we hope more women will be inspired to challenge themselves and greater awareness can be generated for women’s causes.

 

What is in store for 2017?!

Our adventure begins tomorrow but the planning starts today.

Time passes by so fast, we will soak into the last quarter of 2016 in just another 2 weeks. Have you wondered if your first half of 2016 had been fruitful ? In a blink of an eye, so fast does time fly.

While it is always nice to relive all those wonderful memories, we don’t forget to look forward.  We have scheduled our popular mountain climbing trips that you can look forward to participate. We have planned three trips specially catered to women-only under the Women On Mountain series, we also have 3000er, 4000er and 5000er scheduled treks that are suitable for both men and women.

To kick start 2017, we planned for a frozen river trek in India, Leh.

We have also scheduled a preview talk on Fri, 23 Sep at Campers’ Corner at 7pm.

Anyone looking at “upgrading” their trekking resume by advancing to higher elevation and more challenging treks, we have planned for twin peaks (two peaks in a single trip) challenge accompanied by a trip leader:

Or single peak above 5000m (treks or ice/snow terrain) accompanied by a trip leader:

Some of you may want a little more demanding in technique and skills, these two peaks offer suitable fulfilling challenge:

 

Women on Mountains

We love our men, and enjoy every bit of their companionship when in the outdoors. But (there is always a but) on some occasions, women only activities are appealing. Women understand women, and women together can be very encouraging. We like to see each other doing well and as a group this can prove to be a great advantage when trying to reach a goal.  Women on Mountains aims to provide a platform to encourage women to challenge themselves through mountain climbing, at the same time, to raise awareness and fund for a women’s cause.

Join us on Sun, 16 Oct at SCWO (96 Waterloo Street) from 2pm to 6pm. We have invited our past female participants to share about their extraordinary journey to scale Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Elbrus, and trekking to the Everest Base Camp. To RSVP, email us at contact@aceadventure.com.sg

If you think that 2016 is moving real fast, then think about 2017, you blink and it will be gone in no time. Plan ahead so that when 2017 comes, you are all ready to embrace it.
