Explore the rugged, contrasting landscapes of Northern Pakistan.

Welcome to the Pakistan Tuk-Tuk Challenge! Pakistan. You’ve probably heard of it, and it’s fair to say that it hasn’t really been somewhere that has existed in most travellers’ minds as a place to go. But we’re here to tell you: it is most definitely a place to go. And it is most definitely best explored by tuk-tuk.

Don’t believe us? Pop over to Google and type in ‘Pakistan nature’. See what comes up. From Islamabad to Hunza, and Peshawar to Gilgit – we are certain that your eyeballs are not ready for this. This place isn’t like all those other places you’ve been. It’s wilder, less-trampled and, objectively speaking, the perfect setting for the trip of a lifetime. Your heart will swell. So join us as we take our three-wheeled wonder-machines out into this fantastical place, on a 9-day ‘Amazing Race’-style challenge that’ll test your physical and mental prowess, and give you at least 636 stories to tell your grandkids. You’ll be pioneering a route through the north that approximately not many travellers have ever done before. You’ll be making history and having a ball.

You’ll be the talk of the town. You’ll be supported by a merry band of fellow travellers as well as medical, operations and mechanical teams the whole way. Not to mention, you’ll have the sensationally friendly locals themselves to help you roam. And you’ll be helping raise money for charity the whole way.

Did we mention the food? You’ve got a blend of Indian and Asian influences, underpinned by stacks of oil and spices. Hot kebabs and rice. Aromatic plates and bowls of veggies. Turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, garam masala. More flavour for your tuk-tuk behaviour. You know what? Just go and pay your closest Pakistani restaurant a visit. Then come back and tell us that you don’t want to go straight to the source. We won’t believe you.

We’ve taken hundreds of travellers through Sri Lanka, India, Cambodia, the Philippines, and the Amazon jungle on tuk-tuks, boats and by foot. Every one of those travellers has come back to us and said something like, “That was literally the best thing I have ever done.” That traveller could be you. Those words could be yours. Now, we’re heading to Pakistan. Who’s coming with us?
