Default cj3b in the forest

This was a trip into a beautiful valley in the eastern ghats, at a place called papi kondalu - Khoida.

It is remote and isolated place with practically no human habitation within 20kms, such places are hard to find to day,20km may not seem much on the highway but where roads are non existent and the going is not more than 4 or 5 kms per hour its quite a long way.

here is where we stayed 3 days with nature. I hope you like the photos even though they don't show the whole picture.

Amazing Trip should say. Loved the way you guys camped in the forest, enjoyed the stay there and moreover, the Tribals living in those jungles. Isin't he a tribal local, holding a Bow & Arrow?

The Location looks wonderfull , it must be a reserve forest , did you have a forest officer or some contacts in forest department , by the way i guess it has to be CJ for such terrain , post us pictures of some wild life sightings

Dear nanda kishore,
COngratulations on your wonderful 3B. I have seen many 3b's with isuzu power trains. This has to be a hyderabad job. There was one example in chennai as well. The only problem is sourcing spare parts for GB.

Please continue to enjoy your 3B as you are doing. All the best!!

Joshguy Hi basically just laze around ie go for drives in the jeep or walks in the morning, yes there is wild life out there but sightings are rare as most wild life is nocturnal and very alert so they see us long before we see them.

WOW!!! This is all what I have been dreaming off. You have a fantastic machine there. I myself have a CJ3B which though is running the original hurricane engine. This limits the excursions that I can make on this fantastic machine to a basically OTR's.

As ther say that dreams never die, I am dreaming that in the later future I might change the engine of my 3B from the original hurricane to something like you have done. I think that you are running an Isuze Turbo 2.6 in this vehicle. Right??

Cheers mate and waiting for more pics
