The Space

As a part of our Responsible tourism policy, we organise Rickshaw Ride along the village roads for the tourists visiting Kerala.

Auto rickshaws (often called tuk-tuk) are common all over India, and provide cheap and efficient transportation. New auto rickshaws run on CNG and are environmentally friendly. Typical mileage for an Indian-made auto rickshaw is around 35 kilometers per liter of petrol (about 2.9 L per 100 km, or 82 miles per gallon [United States (wet measure), 100 miles per gallon Imperial (United Kingdom, Canada)]. Many major nationalized banks in India offer loans to self-employed individuals seeking to buy auto rickshaws. Auto rickshaws are found in cities, villages and in the countryside. There are two types of autorickshaws in India. In older versions the engines were situated below driver's seat. In newer versions engines are in rear portion. They normally run on petrol, CNG and diesel. The seating capacity of a normal rickshaw is 4, including driver.

Auto rickshaws are common vehicles in India and several other countries. Though variable in size, the rickshaws used for the Rickshaw Challenge will seat up to 3 people (1 driver in the front seat and 2 passengers in the back). Though the design of the rickshaw cannot guarantee complete safety and security, the low top speed of the vehicle contributes to major accident prevention.

It is common for these 3-wheeled vehicles to break down, especially older models. They are however, easy to repair and as locals drive them throughout India, there is no short supply of repair shops or autorickshaw mechanics.
