About this event

Brace yourselves!

Explore the sights and sounds of the centuries-old rich culture of Sindh and the civilisation of the Indus Valley. Their history has given them strong traditions, customs, folklore, a distinct lifestyle and their own language called Sindhi.

Riding an auto rickshaw is an awesome way to travel that is not only fun but it gives a unique way to get a taste of local life. It will also enable you to meet local villagers and experience the traditional festivals with bull runs and Sindhi Malakhra (an ancient Sindhi form of wrestling popular in Pakistan and India, which dates back 5,000 years).

As a participant of the Pakistan Rickshaw Challenge, you will get first-hand experience of pottery making and local embroidery along with visiting some of the historic villages and towns. You will also enjoy the local cuisine, get an opportunity to pick guava, take part in the making of local sugar and stroll in the largest Asian date farms.
