Join the Indian rickshaw road trip challenge for a culture and excitement. This 10 day Tuk Tuk overlanding adventure in India starts and ends in Kerala.
Welcome to the Indian rickshaw road trip challenge! Fact: lots of people have been to India. In fact, you can barely move for people who’ve been to India. It’s all “India this” and “India that.” And that’s not a bad thing. India is amazing. Properly amazing. But, the next time someone comes up to you and starts going on about India, imagine you were able to respond with: “Sorry, can I stop you there?
I actually once drove a rickshaw about 1000km around India on my own, so whatever you have to say about India, it better be more interesting than that. And if it isn’t, well-intentioned though I’m sure you are, my suggestion is that you leave this conversation posthaste and go and have a long, hard think about how decidedly pedestrian your trip to India was compared to mine. OK?” Yeah. Cool innit.
See, we love rickshaws and we love adventures. So we thought we’d take our extremely successful rickshaw rally format – in which, you drive around a country as part of a team and complete challenges to accrue points – and apply it to India.
This Tuk Tuk overlanding adventure in India kicks-off in Kerala then wind up, down, under and around this incredible sub-continent, before eventually arriving back in Kerala, like a big, spicy, self-drive boomerang. And there it is. The India Challenge. Are we good or what?
We hire the rickshaws from local drivers. We arrange all of your accommodation. We ensure a big chunk of your entry fee goes towards helping local communities. All you have to do is turn up, get in and drive the damned things on this Indian rickshaw road trip. You won’t find another adventure like it.
Our Tuk Tuk overlanding adventure in India does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s in India. It’s challenging. You drive rickshaws. And an Indian adventure is pretty much guaranteed. But really, there’s so much more in the tin than that: there’s Jungle with tigers in it, impossibly hot curry, getting lost and the occasional monsoon rain cloud . If that sounds like your particular brand of fun, read on.
Getting dirty when you have a nice bed to look forward to is fun; getting dirty when all you have to look forward to is more dirt is no fun at all. That’s why we like to look after you after a hard day on the open road: a few nights in some lovely urban Indian hotels and a few nights in some pretty awesome boutique hotels tucked away in the hills. We’ll also chuck in delicious breakfasts and dinners during the challenge.
