Into The Jungle

Dhruv Saxena heads to the Kadamane Tea Estate in Sakleshpur, Karnataka for the 152nd edition of the Mahindra Great Escape to spend a weekend engaged in some hard core off-road action

Most manufacturers involved in the business of selling SUVs organise off-road camps of sorts to show case the capabilities of their vehicles to existing and prospective customers. These courses are specifically curated to make the car and novices like you and me look like heroes. Don’t get me wrong.

This means that it is unlikely that you will find yourself in a sticky situation. Mahindra, however, does things a bit differently, as I discovered during the weekend long Great Escape in Sakleshpur.
