This is a Classic event organized by Mahindra Adventure and is labeled ‘the drive of a life time’, by those who have been fortunate to attend it. The Monastery Escape takes participants in a convoy of expedition ready cars from Delhi to Leh via Manali, Jispa and Sarchu and then proceeds to Srinagar via Kargil. Out of the world landscapes, enough free days, exploratory tours and lots of driving makes the Monastery Escape very special. The route covers some of the highest motorable roads in the whole world and the drive through more plains above 10,000 ft is simply mind blowing.
Optional tours take participants to the famous lakes like Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri or to Khardung La. You can also ride a motorcycle and ride around Leh visiting monasteries or chill out at the famous German bakeries. Leg 2 traces the same route back to Delhi. That means there are only 40 entries (minimum two people per car) and this event has a habit of getting booked even before the web site opens. Trust us, you can’t go wrong with the Monastery Escape. So hurry!
