@Trancenut, can you pl. share:

(1). The location of this trip, the scenery is so beautiful, jut couldn't resist asking it. (2). Do you have 4x2 or 4x4. (3). The place you visited (as shown in these pics), can it be done with a 4x2 without any risk of getting stuck?
1) Its a 4x4 3.0 DICOR
2) The place is somewhere in the spiti loop. He will be able to give you the exact location details.
3) Its doable in a 4x2 but will take some effort and driving.

My recent trip to Bikaner. The road from Sikar to Bikaner on NH 11 around 200 kms is the best to drive. Almost nil oncoming traffic. I could consistently mantain 120 +. One of the best highways i have driven. Here are some snaps.

Trance it takes guts to go the places that you have visited in the safari with no traffic around. (just in case with the Dicor).

Pretty unforgiving territory. Impressive.

Default Somewhere in the most interior and no communication lands...

Safari Dicor VTT- TMT Grand 2-year ownership travel - in search of most primitive tribes of india - the Bonda tribes of India.

Somewhere in interior Dantewada district, Chhattisgarh, in search of an abandoned forest temple. Three days of constant rain has made that embankment slippery has anything and there was no way back. The VTT-TMT had a most heart stopping escape as it began to slide on that embankment to the rice field down below [HT tyres and that too with minimum tread now after 2 years of hard riding]

Ankadelli - to witness the most primitive, interesting & unique tribal weekly market of the Bonda tribes. The place is the border of the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh, divided by river Machkund, with waterfall, mountain & forest.
-- absolute Naxalite territory

v&v,

@ADC - you never fail to surprise and you need no 4x4 for the adventures. You and your Safari are a great combination. Waiting for the travelogue.

@ adc

Someone rightly said above, you don't need any 4x4. You always come with a surprise package, bigger then previous ones. It won't be an exaggeration to say that you are the inspiration for all of us, - 'the poor fellows' (as our JK dada from Thiruanantpuram calls), who don't have the luxury of belonging to the club of 'big boys' (4x4 owners). Yes, it needs tremendous efforts and driving skills to be the architect of those surprise packeges. Nothing less than a passion and great amount of zeal will suffice to visit those unknown territories.
Hence, a warm salute to you and your spirit. Keep it up bro. We look forward to you many more of them.

Oh yes, the comparison is very apt, Here more info

Quote:
The Bonda or Bondo are an ancient tribe of people numbering approximately 5000 who live in the isolated hill regions of the Malkangiri district of southwesternmost Orissa, India, near the junction of the three states of Orissa, Chhattisgarh, and Andhra Pradesh.

The Bonda are generally semi-clothed, with the women characterised by the wearing of thick silver necklace bands. The tribe is one of the oldest and most primitive in mainland India with their culture little changed in over a thousand years. Their isolation and known aggression continue to preserve their culture despite the pressures of an expanding Indian population. Source- Wikipedia

Thanks much for these wonderful comments - of course a 4wd is a 4wd, no doubt ever. This was this Friday only, will be putting up a travelogue in the week to come. Chitrakote falls was also in almost full flow and the view was fantastic.

Congrats Param,
Your beast looks great. Alloys are really cool.

Please post a pic of the IRVM when the reverse camera is on. I think they are now installing much LCD screens in the mirror.

Also are you able to lock the vehicle with the remote at night without the
follow me home lights coming on.

Congrats once again.
Thanks sid!

Sorry for the delay in posting the requested pic. I wasn't keeping well last week. Here you go with the pic of the IRVM with the reverse camera view.

The follow me home headlights come on every time I use the remote to lock the car. If there is a way to turn off this feature, I'm not aware of it.

Cheers!
