Great Escape Itanagar

Mahindra Adventure partners with Motorsports Club of Arunachal (affiliated to the Federation of Motorsports Clubs of India) to curate the first of its kind offroad experience at Borum the mountains surrounding and guarding Itanagar the capital city of Arunachal Pradesh. If tropical jungle, slush & mud, remote mud tracks, driving on ridges and rallies – excite you, then join us on this exciting, tough, yet hugely insightful drive on tracks and trails in the jungles and mountains of Arunachal Pradesh.. Besides the sheer geography and road, this land is also home to the Nyishi tribe with their quaint folk culture, exotic cuisine and more. The Great Escape is an Offroader’s delight, a cultural spectacle & a true-blue opportunity to return to the basics, all this- while enduring the challenging drive daily. Drive for over 36 kms on forgotten mud tracks that shall test both man and machine; most of these may only be traversed on by 4×4 vehicles. The trail is punctuated with non-descript hamlets, some nasty inclines. Warm and hospitable people provide relief from the otherwise tough surroundings. Their life isn’t easy, but the sheer contentment & cheer is sure to make you rethink and calibrate your own lens for life. Get ready for many testing your own limits on the challenging trails of Borum that spruce up this drive for the discerning traveller!
