Here’s something for driving enthusiasts: a journey that, quite literally, goes off the beaten track. An ever-ready partner for indulgent getaways and conquering challenging terrain, Mahindra Adventure unveils their classic expedition–and it’s an unmissable package for anyone passionate about driving. Not only will it satiate expert drivers who crave new avenues for navigation, but also ignite a spark in those new to steering across mountain roads. And don’t worry about bringing your car along, as the journey features an advantageous ‘arrive and drive’ concept pioneered in India by Mahindra Adventure.
This year, the Mahindra Adventure Himalayan Spiti Expedition takes you to the beautifully vast expanses of the Lahaul-Spiti region of the Himalaya; don’t forget to mark the dates from September 8-17, 2018 on your calendars. The adventure begins at Chandigarh, before going through Shimla, Narkanda, Sangla Valley, Nako, Tabo and Kaza; the return route to Chandigarh stops through Manali. The challenge, here, is coming out on top of the trying topography of these valleys: with the naturally exciting twists and turns of alpine roads, the expedition will not only pump up the adrenaline, but also test your boundaries for adventure.
What can one expect to see on this brilliant trip, you ask? The jaw-dropping sight of the beautiful valleys, ancient monasteries, and some gargantuan mountain passes. What makes the package more enticing, are adventure activities like river crossing and off-roading. And if all this doesn’t leave you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, the fact that you can off-road at 14,000-feet near Kaza is sure to leave you with tingles of enthusiasm.
National rally champion and off-roading legend Hari Singh will lead the motley team of rallyists and off-roaders in this adventurous escape, his years of experience coaching participants to accelerate through any difficult situations.
Driving a sturdy and trustworthy 4X4 Mahindra vehicle, fulfill your rough road dreams, but drive assured: medical assistance, should you require it, will be ever-present. Along with experiencing personal peaks, you will also visit the highest post office, and the highest inhabited village in the world; enjoy idyllic Chitkul village, and gorge on delicious breakfasts; and be rewarded with a party on the last day in Manali before returning to the starting point. So, what are you waiting for? Rev up your engines, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
