The rally started 15 October 2008 in Maastricht, to finish versus the end of November in Royal Bhutan.

What is it about?
The Himalaya Trial, is a rally for classic cars. We have two routes, one for the people who love to drive and who's first aim it is to drive the route, enjoy the scenery and the companionship of equally interested people.
You had the choice of just checking out in the morning and drive at your own pace or do one or two of the regularities just to be part of some very light competition.
