Laughter, new sights at every turn, a new roof over your head every night, new tastes and flavours. The world unfolds as the journey begins…music and a friend and not a care in the world … just the road trip! You coming along? The mountains beckon!”
Mayur added, "What could be better than a road trip through the magnificent hills of Uttarakhand. Leaving the scorching plains for the winding roads, cool misty mornings, bonfire-lit evenings and delicious hill cuisines is our plan. Come share our journey, of food, fun and friendship on Season 8. This one will be really, really cool. Really ;)”
