Straight from the heart of South-East Asia we proudly present the most anticipated, craved and sought after event of the year - the Cambo Challenge!

The land of smiles will once again be home to the Cambo Challenge, which will see 20 teams & 40 universal travel aficionados traversing this unique Kingdom of Wonder on traditional - French named, Japanese powered & Cambodian designed - auto-remorque motos.

This unusual motorcycle-meets-carriage mishmash is guaranteed to be one of the most awkward, irrational and absurd ways to explore the over 1,350 km's of wild, rugged and challenging territory set out on this demanding adventure. Make no mistake, this is a mentally and physically challenging journey that will push your boundaries and test you in many ways. So dust off your Indy Jones hat and get ready to become the most resourceful, handy and inventive character since MacGyver. No other escapade will provide you with such authentic knowledge of the local Khmer ways and customs.

From the emblematic Angkor Wat to the pristine southern coast, this kind nation will simply astound you! Prepare yourself to be captivated by the Kingdom´s rich culture, influential religion, puzzling history and ancient heritage. All of this whilst admiring endless paddy fields, astonishing temples and spectacular landscapes.

As always our meaningful journey will embrace responsible travel and bring positive change to the local communities and everyone touched by this event.

2 testimonials about this trip

  1. Reviewer: located in Dubai, UAE

    One of my most memorable life experiences. LM managed to strike the perfect balance between organisation rigour and genuine personal adventure. Their attention to detail, which was unflappable, did not in any way hinder the personal freedom and liberation of seeing the beautiful country, which is Cambodia, from the drivers seat of a tuk-tuk.


    We had the freedom to travel in our own time, interacting with the local flavour and culture from the disarming and conversational starting position of a tuk-tuk while knowing help, if required, was just a local call away and that our nights accommodation and meal was already organised to highest of standards. A great feat of organisational skill. I look forward to the next installation

    "Who else can claim they have circumnavigated Sri Lanka and Cambodia driving a Rickshaw? Or bought fuel in a coke bottle whilst wearing pyjamas? I truly believe there is no better way to see a complete country and get down with the local culture. You just can't do this on a tour. Make no mistake, this is a mentally and physically challenging adventure that will test you in many ways. The social side plays the biggest part - we made a great group of friends and every night was a party. Large Minority gave us an expertly planned fully-inclusive holiday which would be nearly impossible to organise on your own, all for a great price and still supporting local charities.

    Bring on the next location!

3 testimonials about the provider, Large Minority - Adventure Holidays & Tuk Tuk Challenges:

  • Reviewer: located in Bangkok, Thailand
    Who needs a tour guide when you can make your own way around Sri Lanka? Lanka Challenge was a fun-filling-10-day-trip with Amazing People from all over the world. LC is definitively one of the world's most adventurous activities. It's not only about winning the Challenge but also about helping the kind people of Sri Lanka. It offers you a chance to absorb the Lankan culture and eventually turn into one of them for a while.
    Believe me when I say that Large Minority's people will make you do things Lankan style. LM has done it this time and I am sure they will do it again... Two thumbs up for the good people at Large Minority and those who participated in the event in 2009.

    People keep asking me about the Cambo Challenge and I think I've nailed what makes it so incomparable for me, it's all about the human interactions. The group were fun, switched on, non-competitive and from all over the map. The challenges got us past our barriers and into authentic Cambodian communities and interactions.
    The LM team were smart, creative, playful and good times. Traveling by tuk tuk was crazy, liberating and totally engaging with your surroundings, and Cambodia itself...half confronting, half embracing and incomparable throughout. We loved it.
