Default SUV Trail Blazing - Chambal

Saturday, March 31st & Sunday, April 1st:
(no seriously this is not April fool announcement)

Proposing to organize a weekend of trail blazing near Agra. SUV participants from Delhi can do early morning start and be there in four hours or come in on Friday evening.

The trails to be done are over ravines of Chambal and Yamuna sand banks. Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Group instructions on how to drive your 4x4 in differing terrains.

Rs9k per couple (or two people) per night including food & cottage stay. Stay is at exclusive private forest lodge. Only eight or nine vehicle slots.

Sudev,

Wish you the best.

Back in 90's I had driven in ravines of the infamous Chambal with a very well known family of Gwalior. The terrain was awesome and only the SWB's could barely manage it, the gradient has sudden and short drops over there.

Do you feel SUV's with an overhang and longer wheel base would manage it?
Unless you are talking about a flatter part of Chambal.
Regards,

@all : Right now it seems the encounter with "dacoits" will have to wait as there are not enough participants. Every one is feeling its is too hot now to go out. Welcome summers. Still keeping fingers crossed if I get some confirmations by tomorrow.

@fazalaliadil : The ravines are awesome with bad drops but there are areas where tractors have been going up or down and so can be used by SUV's. Also the traverse along the river bed of Utaangan is challenging with slush / water wade and steep slopes. SUV friendly.
