Mahindra promotes this event with full of energy & its always fun to attend. But getting a 4X4 vehicle from mahindra is not equally easy. This year Munnar event is on 13th December.

They should've made this on the 15-16-17 long weekend. We would've participated too na!
Will we get to see any Logans this time? LOL!

Good lucks to all those who are attending this time around.

Tell me about it! Getting there 3 days later, albeit not in the Jeep but a RWD sedan. The Goan great escapes are awesome. To those who can make it, don't think twice. Entries are still open.

Hey Guys, the Coorg Great Escape is just 11 days away.

On 20th Sept 2008, the Rally will start and end at The Club Mahindra Kodagu Valley and will pass through Galibedu, Chapada Keera, Vanachalu School and then in the off road forest region. But only Mahindra vehicles are allowed I think. Register with your local Mahindra dealer for the event.

The entries are still open, do make it if you can. I'll be there too.

Hi Sharath sir.If you get time I would love to meet you in coorg before or after your done with the offroading.it would give me a chance to ogle at ur beauty and maybe you could drive my jeep and spot any mods that i may need for it.i would have loved to take part in it but with a broken elbow i dont think i can drive my jeep.

I am not much of a Jeep expert, but I know many expert Jeepers who are attending. PM your number to me, I'll call you when I come there.

It is a 3/4 day event, I am planning to drive back the same evening. From outskirts of Bangalore, it should not take more than 4 hours.

Better get your gum boots, there will be lots of muck and leaches.
