“The most incredible and rewarding trip ever”“Let me reiterate our thanks for organising such an amazing Lanka Challenge event. We’ve been travelling for over 40 years, and the Lanka Challenge is far and away the most incredible and rewarding trip I’ve ever done. The most admirable aspect was the ‘light touch’ achieved – never bossy or prescriptive, just gentle guidance and warning.”
