Mahindra and Mahindra have announced its calendar for season 8 under Mahindra Adventure, the adventure and motor sports wing of the company. The new season will have a 10 day expedition to the base camp of Mt Everest, along with the existing events like the 11-day Monastery Escape (Delhi to Leh).
On the launch of Season 8 calendar, Veejay Nakra, chief of sales and marketing, automotive division, Mahindra and Mahindra, said, “After 7 successful seasons, we are gearing up to unleash a series of adventure initiatives throughout this year that promise a lot more excitement and thrill for adventure enthusiasts. To add to the adrenaline pumping line-up, Mahindra Adventure has chartered into unexplored territories with the addition of Everest Base Camp and Desert Challenge this year. I am confident that all these initiatives will further cement the tough and the rugged capabilities of our vehicles and take Mahindra Adventure to newer heights.”
The Everest base camp expedition will see participants head towards Nyalam and Tibet, thereby crossing the border into China through the Friendship Bridge. Moving ahead, the convoy will then drive through Tibet, to enter the forbidden city of Lhasa that houses Potala palace and numerous other monasteries. Other than this, the Great Escape series will be going to locations like Chennai and Vishakapatinam this time and a number of off-roading events will take place in all the 10 locations.
