Teams must travel by train to Rambukkana. Once there, teams must travel by tuk-tuk to the Millennium Elephant Foundation to find their next clue.

Choice A: Trunk
Teams would have to work with an elephant to load a truck with timber. After chaining a special knot to the larger pieces of timber so the elephants can lift it, the racers and the elephant have to each carry three logs, for a total of six, to the truck. After getting their elephants palm leaves, the mahout will give them their next clue.

Dave & Connor, Jessica & John, Jet & Cord, and Leo & Jamal chose this task.

Choice B: Sheets
Teams would have to make paper using an environmentally friendly and unique ingredient, elephant dung. After collecting dung in a wheelbarrow, teams will take it over to the paper mill where it is mixed with water and paper scraps to make pulp. Teams then use the pulp on screens, making sure to press out the bubbles, to make five sheets of paper. After they've laid five pre-made sheets out to dry, the managing director will give them their next clue.

Brendon & Rachel, Caroline & Jennifer, and Flight Time & Big Easy chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Ambepussa Rest House and listen for a music that will lead them to the wise man playing on a flute and who will give teams their next clue.

Teams must travel by taxi to the Mount Lavinia Hotel beach to check in.

For coming in first, Leo & Jamal won a trip for two to Berlin, Germany, provided by Travelocity.

For coming in last place, Caroline & Jennifer will have to perform a Speed Bump at some point during the next leg of the race.
