Man we really missed the actual fun.

This is an amazing collection of vehicles, most of them have winches too.


Wow, how did the GV manage in the river? The stock tyres are generally useless in any kind of slush.

All we guys got to experience was the dry river bed. Thats it!!!

I like the second pics. If I am not wrong, thats your gypsy. Right? Had you come at a little more speed, it would have made a great picture!!!
Hi Harjeev,
This place was about 15 kms away from the sand pit point. Yes, that is my Gypsy. There were big boulders strewn in the water bed and hence we had to keep down the speed.

Randeep,
The Bolero ran perfectly OK after being winched out by Vijay Parmar and Vishal Wazir Singh. I must find more pics of the Bolero to post here. It is one of the best looking Boleros I have seen till date. Yes, the water was fun, you guys should have stayed till the end. But then, there is always a next time.

It was good on the rocky river bed. But the deep water and clay bed caught out the road bias tyres.

Cheers

Hi Vaibhav

Is there another entry into this trail from where we do not have such a long sand bed. It gets boring after some time to just go on and on driving on sand. I would have liked at experience more of the different types of terrain. What elae was there after the river?

Cheers

Yeah Randeep,
Ii think that we missed the best part of the OTR. Must have been great fun.
I think that we should try this again sometime. Leave from delhi on Friday afternoon, keep the OTR for Saturday, be at the OTR for the entire day and come back on Sunday.

@Vahbhav
How far was this track from the place where the mandir was. Couldn't have been much far as we could see the mandir from a distance, and the mandir was at the start of the mountains.
Do you have a GPS fix or the co-ordinates of the location??

Ankit,
The river crossing was the last point of the OTR.
I agree that it gets monotonous if you have the same terrain without
much obstacles. The Chandigarh 4X4 club is a new club, I am sure with
time they will find more challenging terrains.

Harjeev,
I have the GPS track (Garmin) for the whole trail.
But, honestly speaking it is not worth it to go there specially.
If you in Chandigarh though, you can reach the point from Pinjaur.
Its about 15 kms from Yadevendra Gardens.

Cheers

I Agree, this trail was quite easy. The Sand is very easily done by maintaining momentum on 4x4H2 or 4x4L 3/4. The only fun part, till the time we were there, was the sand pit & the climbs we guys started doing close to it. Otherwise it was cake walk.

We guys have got used to more challenging trails. Being a new club, The growth to trying something more severe will take time. We guys in NIOC are lucky to have Dare Devils like Sarvinderjee, Shayamjee, RBjee locate the challenges and get us through them.

Infact That was my Jeep, Gypsy was trying to pull twice.

1) My Clutch adjustment went off in the sandpit so I couldnt engage any gears. The gypsy tried but was not able to pull me out.

After the adjustment the Jeep was Great Guns again.

2) Due the lots of sand flying and me being very close the the Jeep in front I could not see where my tyers we going. So they went into a slight trench and my Jeep got stuck on the deffreintials. That needed a slight pull. This was done by the gypsy sucessfully. (Learnt my lesson there)

Infact in the Sariska Trip my Jeep went into 4 ft deep water and engine took water. The engine was stopped and the Jeep was pulled out by Arjun's Gypsy with a tow.

Hi Gotzuk,

Would it be possible to dig out the GPS track for this location. I stay in Chandigarh and would like to go and test out my Safari's 4x4. Please PM me in case you have the track.

Thanks
