AN EXTREME TERRAIN DRIVE THAT CHALLENGES BOTH THE DRIVER IN YOU AND YOUR MIND

If you have driven to Ladakh and Spiti and now the driving enthusiast in you is wondering what next – the cliffhanger is an ideal extreme overland to up the driving skill level and your mental agility as a driver. The terrain includes a high mountain pass, sections of narrow mud tracks with stone and slush and a long stretch of cliffy road with dramatic overhangs.

The sheer natural beauty is brilliant – the Chandra Bagha river roars deep down in the valley, the rocky mountain strewn with small trails, the remote and secluded town of Killar and villages few and far in between. In fact legend has it that this area was so remote that the Chamba kings who ruled over it would send their prisoners here forcing them to brave the adversity.
