Women Beyond Boundaries take a Porsche across the Himalayas

Porsche India has partnered with the organisation ‘Women Beyond Boundaries’ (WBB) on a 20-day expedition across the Himalayas. Nidhi Tiwari, founder of the organisation, showcased the need for women’s empowerment through mobility, by driving the 4,000 km route through challenging terrain together with her navigator Neha V Sadananda. The drive tested the Cayenne’s endurance on some of the highest motorways in the world as well as test its off-road capabilities across different terrain and riverbed crossings. The expedition supported women’s empowerment through mobility education and raising awareness about women’s health and cancer in the most remote corners of the country.

The trail witnessed extreme challenging terrains beginning from the plains of Delhi through the Pir Panjal ranges in Himachal, all the way to Nathula — the highest motorable road in the world. The team also documented mobility solutions adopted by women in these high altitude areas. The mission was to empower women with overlanding skills so that they may own public roads for greater accessibility and mobility.
