About Us

Zen Quest Adventures Limited was founded by Eben Farnworth and Edward Lau in 2012, to run high end outdoor education programmes for Shantou University and a range of corporate, school, charity and other organisations. Many programmes travelling to some of the most beautiful and hard to reach parts of the middle kingdom have since been established. These range from comfortable and easy to reach programmes in Hong Kong, Yangshuo and Lijiang to wild adventure locations in the deserts of Inner Mongolia and the mountains of Sichuan. Starting in 2015 Zen Quest is launching a new range of environmental technology modules to add to it’s existing range of outdoor education programmes. Then in 2016 work will start on a new environmental technology centre in Yunnan province built almost entirely of natural and recycled materials.
