The legendary tuk tuk takes centre stage yet again at the popular Lanka Challenge 2012. The 12 – day three-wheeler encounter that takes competitors who arrive from across the globe on a journey across the island.

This year’s event is unlike in any other in the competition’s four-year history with the opening up of the Northern hemisphere, allowing participants to explore roads less travelled. The teams travel North from Negombo and proceed to Jaffna where they continue through the popular town of Trincomalee before climbing the hills of Nuwara Eliya en route back to Negombo.

Similar to the Cambo Challenge held in Cambodia, Participants of the Lanka Challenge will have to complete both against each other and sometimes together in order to fulfill a number of challenges based on culture, ecology and adventure.

The winners of the event will be determined on the final day of the event on the 11th of September.

Lanka Challenge is jointly supported by the Sri Lanka Ministry of Tourism and the Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau.
