Join Team Jetters as we compete against 10-20 other teams of 3 in a tuk tuk race across Southern Sri Lanka over the course of 9 days in September 2019.
Imagine being able to tell your mates that you travelled 1,000km around Sri Lanka. In a rickshaw. A rickshaw that you drove. That, friends, is the Lanka Challenge rickshaw adventure: the ultimate road trip for those who like their travel fully-charged and no-holds-barred. Each day you’ll wake up, be told where you need to be by sundown, and get handed a list of challenges to complete along the way – the completion of which will see our team accrue points.
Kandy, Colombo, Nuwaraeliya, the South coast – the Lanka Challenge Southern Route takes in all of southern Sri Lanka’s ‘Greatest Hits’, well, most of the time, there will be occasions we can’t fit them all in but you get the gist. It’s been scientifically proven that the Southern Route is both the secret to happiness and the meaning of life. So there you go.
