@tsk1979: Where are you off too? Another attempt at Kunzum? ;-)
And here I was particular about finding a trail without too many thorny bushes in the way all for your White Elephant!

Just 10~20minutes out from Delhi or Gurgaon. Timing is 1000hrs to 1500hrs on Sunday November 1st. You can return earlier if bored (??gasp!!) or in a hurry. Easy connect to main road without too much navigation.
I will cross post details here as well but you can also check Event page on FaceBook

Default Trail Description

This time it is relatively easy trail and less of thorny scrub jungle - less not nil! And very near from Gurgaon/Delhi

There is a coffer dam that is very tempting target to climb. This is view from top. Will test engine power, tyre grip, geometry and drivers resolve to climb.

There are rain run-off ditches that need to be crossed. Tests cooperation of the driver and navigator (passenger seat wala)

Plenty of open area. Do not get fooled by grassy cover it is all sand. There is a "lake" near by that is target for picnic lunch.

Hill on the background is tempting target.

There is small wild life like fox, jackals, blue bull, spotted deer, monkey, langur, peacock and other birds.

Sun sets over the rocky hill that forms departure area. Nothing as bad or risky as last time here but interesting al the same.

@rkbharat: SX4 will manage a lot of it. Yet it will be as is said about bikini "reveals a lot but hides what vital"

Why not jump in with one of the others from start point (yet to be announced) at Gurgaon? Last time also we had few cars with lone riders - including me.
