Tata launched the all-new Safari earlier this year and the car has already become quite popular in the market. In fact, there is a waiting period of a few months for the all-new Safari and customers have to wait for two months to get their hands on the vehicle. In the meantime, Tata has dispatched and delivered thousands of Safaris since its launch. Customers even in Arunachal Pradesh have received the delivery of the vehicle. One such customer reached the BomdiLa Pass, which is located in Arunachal Pradesh.
The owner started his journey from Assam and crossed into Arunachal in the noon. They reached the BomdiLa at night, which sure tested the capabilities of the all-new Safari. They completed the journey in about 15 hours and took two stops in between for breakfast and lunch.
BomdiLa is a mid-altitude pass located in the Himalayas. The roads are a mix of newly-laid tarmac and bad roads. The Safari completed the journey with two passengers and then two passengers. The Safari completed the journey with a Mahindra XUV300. Both the vehicles started from the same location and reached the destination together. They even refilled at the same point. The pass is located at a height of 7,923 feet above mean sea level (MSL). The video by put on by the owner of the Safari on his channel.
On the way, the Safari and the XUV300 went through thick fog, sandy patches, broken roads and fantastic high-speed tarmacs. Both the vehicles performed extremely well and none of them broke down too.
