Nagaland Winter Expedition 2023 concludes
DIMAPUR — After a cultural immersion and reaching India’s eastern border, the nine-day Nagaland Winter Expedition 2023, which covered 12 districts of Nagaland, concluded on Saturday with the expedition team heading to Zunheboto.
Organised by 4×4 Attitude Expedition, it was flagged off on December 27 from CT Square, 7th Mile, Chümoukedima, with the tagline ‘Unforgiving terrains, uniting people’. The expedition saw the off-roaders traverse over 1,000 km through unforgiving roads and harsh weather conditions.
An update provided an overview of the expedition, mentioning that there were portions where the navigation could not provide accurate coordinates as they drove through the night towards Zunheboto.
During the expedition, the convoy drove through huge boulders, deep water and mountainous paths as well as took turns climbing the steep hills on their 4x4s on their way to Mt. Kapamodzü, Nagaland’s highest motorable peak at 2498 m.
The expedition team also travelled to Kohima to visit the war cemetery, where they learned about the history of the Battle of Kohima and its significance in stopping the Japanese invasion of India.
After eight days of driving, most of the off-roaders settled down in the base camp at Benreu village in Peren. Only six off-roaders competed on the final day.
According to the statement, the off-roaders stated that Nagaland is a safe destination that must be experienced once in a lifetime. The expedition included 24 cars from outside Nagaland and participants from all over India.
