In keeping with their custom to go off the beaten path, Mahindra Adventure recently organised an off-roading weekend at Lonavala, near Pune. With over 100 of the company’s 4WD machines taking part in various events such as the 10-km jungle drive, 2WD obstacle course and the Mahindra Off-road Trophy, the whole atmosphere was electrifying.


The participants were allowed to take part in any of these events. As for myself, I am an off-road enthusiast, so I decided to take part in the trophy challenge, which is an extreme off-roading event. What a way to start a weekend!

After a sumptuous breakfast all the participants were briefed about the event, the different challenges involved, and the points system. There were three stages: a stream crossing, the slush pit, and the rock crawl. Each participant would be marked on skill and vehicle preservation.

After the briefing, it was time to rock and roll. I was given the key to a 2015 Mahindra Thar. Highly excited, I was ready to put the Thar to the test.
