Mahindra Scorpio 4x4 AT through Satpura

The manager knew we had the Scorpios, so he took us to areas around the forest sanctuary that were generally considered off-limits by the locals. And with good reason. The path was practically covered with craters, and water-filled crevices. Perfect off-roading material, then. Thanking the manager, we shifted the Scorpios into 4x4 mode and rallied off on the village track.

As we said earlier, India truly is a country waiting to be explored. If you go beyond the usual roads, on paths less travelled, there are discoveries to be made and surprises to be enjoyed. You just need the right ride that will take you that extra mile.
