Due to this reason, the annually held Rainforest Challenge either locally or international will always count Terengganu into part of the racing route. The 4WD driving always begins from neighbouring states into Hulu Terengganu, crossing Kenyir Lake then ending the journey in Kuala Terengganu. Along this way, there are places which are named by regular enthusiastic participants in this activity, such as Predator, Terminator, Twilight Zone, Flying Fox and Bridge to Nowhere for identification purpose.
