If you’ve ever traveled through Southeast Asia, you’re probably familiar with rickshaws — aka tuk-tuks — often used as taxis. With this new rickshaw experience, however, you won’t be hassled by drivers competing for your business; you’ll be the driver, and your road will be one of the most epic in the world.
The Rickshaw Run is a crazy week-long rickshaw excursion across the Himalayas, operated by the Adventurists. It aims to give people a truly unique way of experiencing the highest mountain range in the world, without having to take months off work for a lengthy hike. There is no planned itinerary, and no guarantee that you’ll make it to the end issue-free. “The only certainty of the Rickshaw Run,” the website says, “is that you will get lost, you will get stuck, you will break dow, and you will help save a bit of the world.”
