The Himalayan Challenge 2018
Friday 21 September - Thursday 11 October 2018
The Endurance Rally Association welcomes you to a brand new adventure on its calendar of events - The Himalayan Challenge. An exclusive event for experienced crews who have completed endurance rallies.
The Himalayas are renowned as a magnet to many different types of adventurers from Everest or K2-scalers to those seeking more of a spiritual journey. This four-wheel adventure combines a bit of both and is perfect for experienced explorer-competitors seeking to pit their wits and skills against a route bursting with challenge, drama, culture and excitement. The event starts in Delhi on Friday 21 September 2018 and finishes in Agra on Thursday 11 October.
Route Designer and Clerk of the Course, John Spiller has, along with the help of local guides and experts, created a route with unmapped roads, winding mountain passes, hair-raising highways and unrivalled scenery. Along the way, crews will stop for a night a stone’s throw from the seat in exile of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, visit the Yoga Capital of the World and finish up a mere five-minute walk from of one of the wonders of the world, the ancient and iconic Taj Mahal.
Open to pre-1976 cars, the 21-day Himalayan Challenge is a true once-in-a-lifetime event.
