Goa to Pokhara, two weeks and 3000km through India and Nepal in a 150cc Auto-Rickshaw!
In September 2009 we signed up for The League of Adventurists' Autumn Rickshaw Run. We put three complete strangers behind the handlebars and joined sixty other teams on a unique, bizarre and totally unforgettable journey from the shores of the Arabian Sea to the foothills of the Himalayas.
Tiger infested jungles, monsoon floods, river crossings, Delhi belly, and more than one empty petrol tank - would they make it? What would they have to do to get there? How would they get along as they bumped cheek-to-cheek for ten hours a day?
From quaint Goa, climbing through Maharashtra, exploring the forts of Madhya Pradesh, threading through the side-streets of Bhopal, crossing the Ganges to the ghats of Varanassi and on to the serenity of Lumbhini - the birthplace of Buddha - and to the Himalayas beyond.
