The event will start from Simla's ridge.

A race will also commence on Saturday from Woodwille Palace in Shimla and conclude at the same place the next day covering 120 km with an elevation gain of 3500 metres.

Himalayan Adventure Sports and Tourism Promotion Association (HASTPA) is organising the rally.
