Im glad you felt exactly how I felt about the trip after I got home.
I should have made it longer and probably stayed overnight. That would so much more fun.

How are your running boards? After you got stuck?
Those are the first casualties on the Safari off the road.

Woh, is that right! Gotta watch out then - one of my original ones finally gave way the other day & I happily picked up the 219 one; as you have mentioned, it sits pretty tight, much tighter than the original one!

No problem with the running boards, they are good. I feel that the running boards in the 2.2 Safari are fitted close to the body and higher than the runningboards of the TCIC Safari. No scratch marks nor dents on the underside either.
Also depends on how you drive. As soon as I was stuck, I did not force it, since there was 2 much wheelspin. Got out, checked the stuckup, backed out, tried again, failed and realised that i dont want to try when we were both very hungry. It was killing the fun out of us.
So I returned.

Lovely mini travelogue and lovely pics as usual Jay. Seeing this makes me wish I could have afforded the 4WD Safari when I went for my LX.

Nice & short one dude!!

Have been to Rajmachi on two occasions in the past. Once was on foot all the way & the other time it was on bikes.

Walking is not as fun as biking all the way.
Since the walk upto Rajmachi is more or less a level terrain it does not feel like a trek. Hence, we found biking to this place much more enjoyable & less time-consuming.

Staying overnight here is an absolute must. The talking & singing in the night(mostly under the influence of alcohol) in the forests is a priceless experience.cheers:
