Enjoyed reading the travelogue, Navtej. You guys certainly had fun together as a family. Karimeen is delicious, though I haven't seen it in Delhi or Kolkata (and our last Kerala trip was in 2004).

What was your parents' reaction on the ride back to Bangalore in the Thar? Who sat in the back?

Cruising on an Indian highway in a Jeep is a special feeling. If you don't own a Jeep, you won't know what I'm talking about. Well, it's a Jeep thing . Have done many road-trips in my Classic, including Bombay - Goa.

A road-trip in a Thar is on my bucket list.
Spot on GTO! Thanks for the appreciation.

The more I see Thar's on this forum, the more I want to buy. I had read on this forum that it is not very easy/comfortable owning a Jeep/Thar. Maybe someone here writes a detailed ownership experience explaining the odds/inconvenience could help who is willing to buy one. After seeing a few spy shots of next-generation Thar, I believe it will be more comfortable.
The new Thar will surely be a major upgrade. You will also get useful things as stock, I saw A/Ts on one of the spy shots of the new Thar, then there is the Hard top as well.

Regarding ownership reviews there are many here, sharing a couple by Blackpearl and me.

Thar / Gypsy has always been my favorite and mostly if everything clicks in the coming years, I’ll try to get hold of a pre owned thar or gypsy and enjoy it once in a while atleast for a brief period of time I shall try and own one.

Rest aside, nice capture of overall.

Keep Jeep’ing.
Thank you gururajrv. Wish you luck on owning a pre-owned Thar/Gypsy. Hope you enjoy it to the fullest, especially if you plan to do it for a short while.

Lovely, your Alto had been there. You did a lot of touring while down south.

Good to see a WB registered car in Kerala. Did you face any difficulties specially in crowded parking with WB car?
Thank you Sukanta73. We did not face any issues with regard to the WB on the reg plate.

Thank you SS-Traveller. Mom and Dad had actually done Sandakphu with us while we were in Kolkata, so this was relatively easy. Mom finds it fine to sit behind. However, surprisingly, Dad also preferred the back seat so that he could stretch his legs straight.
