This is the first time i wanted to shoot seriously. I just started processing the RAWs now. Just to begin with, my favorite shot of the trip. Guys, there is no road, the path you are seeing is freshly created by vehicles. i wanted to include the entire path which is going to left side of the frame and starting again from top to right. But i wanted to focus of the jeep standing on top, and the hight of the hill. The jeep standing on top is chandan's, the one which is trying to climb is Swasthinkviji's. Will post more when i ge time to process.

Enjoy.....

Khan,

bolts falling off from lamba locking hubs is not limited to you only. I have 8 bolts missing from last OTR. so is nanjappa's gypsy. He has found the reason for this loosening. bolt will have a conical shaped lock which gets expanded when tightened and locks the bolt. I need to buy them for my gypsy too.

What superb pics and narration by all you guys. What scenery. It was worth getting all your joints aching to be in the midst of such spellbinding and picturesque surroundings, surrounded by your beloved steeds. What pristine waterfalls and that pic with all the jeeps on top of the green hill is worth framing.

India never stops to amaze me. Kudos to the guy who thought of this trail.

What a killer of a location

Congrats to the guys who dared to go that distance. and as usual mjothi at his best

The only thing that Spidey requires are High Security Number plates, that would complete the Photogenic Look.

He was in his jeep. I think all the action of sunday is packed mostly in swastik viji's cam. He needs to speed up.

Btw, I think the last hill where his vehicle was towed, is not covered. Atleast, I did not since memory card was full.

And I did not see anyone with cam too. If anyone, please share it.

WOW! already thread started, excellent write up by Mjothi .
Two days of hostile weather condition OTR and enjoying with offroaders what a time we had, every bit of pain is worth it.
Guys with bazuka lens common start posting photos.

Excellent pictures and write up, though the pictures hardly require a write up. Seeing all of this maybe I need to start thinking of buying a Jeep/Gypsy now. But the million dollar question WHAT? Lolz.

I was there only for the second day, first day I was on my own doing my solo trip through an unknown territory called Bisle ghat.

In this OTR I was driving most of the time, not much chance for action photography.
