Hi Nandish, What Mjothi says is right. This terrain is not for Forester. Even Safaris would take the beatings underneath on this terrain and its more challenging for the SUV drivers. I would suggest you to hop into other vehicles and witness it before you do.

Let me put it like this.

This is not a one spot where the OTR is done. This is basically a long trail, where you enter from one direction, roam around, climb etc and come in different side. So, if you cant make it in middle, you should be ready to back off and take your own way back. Can't expect other vehicle to join or help you reach the starting point.

Again. We are not saying, this is impossible. But you would be in a better position to judge yourself if once you see this trail.

And, with monthly 3 to 4 OTRs done in bangy, I am sure this place will be revisited may be within a month.

What Dwarak saar?

This terrain has one challenging obstacle if you clear it without beatings, then you can enjoy the rest. There is only one entry point and the same is the exit. That challenging obstacle is at the entry point . You cannot bypass this to enter into the trail.

entry point to the OTR spot itself is a treacherous one. We will come back the same way. Advice is to bring your forrester, at your own risk. Alternative is to hop into one of jeep/gypsy from city itself and see for yourselves the terrain and bring your offroader next visit

Nandishpal,

track is definitely doable with some guidance. Your readiness is very encouraging to us to have your forrester. Let's do it. Only advice, listen and follow instructions by guide.

You are welcome buddy.
