The Malabar Rampage is over for another year, so let’s look back on the fun.
Last week we featured some of the best moments from the first half of the Malabar Rampage 2017. The rickshaw challenge is now over, so it’s the perfect time to remember highlights from the event. On their way up the Malabar Coast, through “God’s Own Country” Kerala, Karnataka, to the stunning beaches Goa, teams became expert rickshaw drivers, gave generously to charitable causes, and even made the local news. Here are the highlights of the second half of the Malabar Rampage 2017.
A big part of any rickshaw challenge is giving back to local communities and this year’s Malabar Rampage was no different. The event raised money for Round Table India’s Freedom Through Education programme, and participants also had a great time visiting schools and getting to know the young students.
Going the Extra Mile
One of the many challenges on this year’s challenge was to take photos with people with impressive moustaches. Many succeeded, but a couple of teams went one step further, and got moustaches themselves. Impressive work.
The Malabar Coast is famous for its incredible beaches: here is just a taster of the golden sands that teams visited last week.
Here are two fantastic sights on the Malabar Rampage. First, the giant statue of Shiva at Mudureshwara. Secondly, lots of our rickshaws lined up. Both beautiful in their own way.
The Award Ceremony
Sadly, the Malabar Rampage had to finish sometime. However, the end of a Travel Scientists‘ event means one thing: time for the finishing party. There were three prizes awarded: the Bonkers trophy (for the craziest team), the Charity trophy (for the participants who raised most for charitable causes) and the overall trophy, for the team who, well, deserved it.
