We are India’s leading organiser of luxury motoring expeditions, off-road experiences and extreme off-road motorsport events having successfully conceptualised and executed over 250 events with highly satisfied individual and corporate customers since our beginning in 2009.
Our signature events include The Himalayan Dash, The Desert Dash and The Sanctuary Dash, all carefully designed to give participants the thrill of driving off-the-beaten track with the best possible stays and highest standards of safety.
I have had the best experience traveling in the Himalayan Dash 2015. You have shown me the places where I wouldn’t have gone otherwise. The entire crew including Ashish treated me and everyone travelling with us as a family and Cougar Motorsport took care of the minute details and prepared us for the challenges every day before we started for the drive in the morning. We completed the Himalayan Dash successfully taking back lots of memories with us. This made me repeat the Himalayan Dash in 2016 which was even better than the 2015 Dash. I would recommend Cougar Motorsport to everyone who wants to make memories as they don’t just show you places; they make beautiful memories for you.
I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of some Events managed by Cougar Motorsports. Mr. Ashish & his wonderful team has always been attentive and accessible to my needs. They respond back in a timely manner to my emails, phone calls or texts. I found them to be very organized and thoughtful of all aspects leading up to the event and on the event day. Their attention to detail and follow up has been a key strength of theirs. They have always gone above and beyond in their commitment. They are very good marketers and have been great with promoting for attendees and sponsors. (more…)
We participated in the Himalayan Dash 2012 (our first time) & were very happy with the arrangements & selection of hotels provided by Cougar Motor sports. Even in extreme conditions & staying in tents, we were provided hot food & hot water. This speaks immensely of the in-depth planning required by the organizers. It was fun, it was challenging…. but at the end, we enjoyed our everyday bon-fire & singing. This brought our entire team together, like one big family.Ashish knows the route too well & has now become an absolute veteran in all his drives. I look forward to joining Cougar in the next editions of Himalayan Dash or Desert Dash.
Came across Cougar Motorsport on a friend's FB page and was instantly sure that I want to do this self driving trip. We assembled on the given day at Shimla to a warm introductory session by the Cougar team. We were a team of 4 women and were taken care of in every possible way...right from the smallest of health concerns to the biggest of vehicle problems. Would definitely recommend them for self driving expeditions to you all. Thank u Ashish and your team ....I have some incredible memories of my trip with u'll.
We have participated in two events conducted by Cougar Motorsport;one was the Himalayan Dash for a 9-day trip and the second the Desert Dash for a 4-day trip. We have made several trips all over the world; I would rate this to be in my top 3 trips and definitely a number # 1 in thrill and luxury travel category. It is very well organized with a unique experience. Ashish and his team took extreme care to provide a safe travel along with maximum comfort at the remotest places in India. (more…)
We had a terrific time. Probably the most enjoyable and sociable rally, The Desert Dash and the excursion, The Himalayan Dash, ever.A well thought out route, selected group of very pleasant like minded people, and experiencing the sheer breadth of territory covering the country side by day and bedding down in the heritage palaces at night with a memorable distillation of Essence of India. Just loved the camaraderie within the group, the positive mood and the sheer enthusiasm.We cannot think of anything that would have been improved on. (more…)
Himalayan Dash is an adventure, an expedition, a journey, that uplifts your soul, challenges your spirit and puts you through one of the toughest tests of your life. It can daunt the most undaunted amongst us. Simply speaking it is a mind game, a real test of your nerves…. And, full credit to Ashish and his team for preparing you for this wonderful experience. Every painstaking detail is meticulously planned in the most professional manner possible…. the drive itself is leisurely, yet so tough; picturesque, yet so demanding; breath-taking, yet so treacherous.

To say that this was one of the most memorable road trips of my life would be an understatement. I am well into my sixties and for me, it was a dream come true and it helped to tick one of my bucket lists!!In this context, I must complement Ashish and his wonderful team who were there each step of the way, allaying any and all concerns of the participants, ensuring that all medical and logistics support were meticulously organised and practically all our creature comforts were impeccably taken care of.

A spectacular adventure! Driving through amazingly scenic locales and stunning snow-bound Himalayan passes was absolutely wondrous. It really is the best way to experience the striking beauty of this region. We met a really nice group of people with much fun and laughter happening throughout the trip. Wonderful memories!Kudos to Ashish and Cougar Motorsport Co. for a superbly planned and organized trip. They took care of everything – great board and lodging, accompanying medical and service facilities, keeping to time-schedules and very importantly ensuring that our vehicles drive safely in a single file over long-distances.Truly a fabulous trip - so happy we could do it.
We went on the Delhi – Leh – Srinagar trip with Cougar as a pre 50th B’day party. Apart from the views and terrain that nature turned on. The team at Cougar led by Ashish turned on a superb display of efficiency, safety and hospitality to make the trip truly memorable. Would love to do another trip with them.
A few years ago my friend and I went for a Rally through Rajasthan organized by Cougar Motor Sports. I must say without hesitation, that their planning of routes, detailed information about everything during the rally, amazing arrangements for the Hotels and each and every one of the participants were made to feel special! Till date when friends are together, we reminiscence about those few days through Rajasthan and the wonderful team at Cougar Motor Sports that made it happen.... Effortlessly! Full mark and kudos to the entire team at Cougar Motor Sports and Ashish particularly!
What struck us about the team at Cougar, Ashish in particular, was that they didn't seem to run it as a business. The attention to detail was something to learn from- in making sure that the every member of the group was taken care of, was comfortable and was enjoying the trip. Our group had people from various backgrounds and age-groups coming in, from youngsters who'd just finished graduation to middle aged couples to septuagenarians, and the team made sure that we gelled and had a good time together all through. It's a shame that we haven't been able to do further trips with Cougar. Shall look forward to the next.
