Bangladesh’s Success in the Classic Car Rally: Classic Cars on the Country Road!

The term “the most migratory species on the world” refers to humans. The human thirst for commerce, education, and adventure has always been a driving force in human history, from the ancient Silk Road to the voyages of discovery that took place during the Age of Discovery. Travel is still an essential component of the modern human experience since it exposes us to new environments, cultures, and opportunities. The history of human travel is extensive and interesting, extending from the first migrations of humans out of Africa to the most current forms of travel, such as air travel.

When we travel, we are exposed to a wider variety of viewpoints and experiences, which forces us to question our preconceived notions and deepens our comprehension of the world. Travel will always be an integral element of the human experience, no matter how far we go out into the world.

The enchantment of the Himalayas is brought to life via the participation in a vehicle rally that takes place throughout the well-known east Himalayan landscape. The East Himalaya rally was considered an adventure by its organizers, who travelled for more than three weeks across Bangladesh, Bhutan, and north-east India in a total of 16 automobiles and two motorbikes, some of which dated back to the 1950s (and in one case, 1934).

Following what the drivers described as a “tricky and technical” travel from Kolkata and what they described as a “calm and tranquil” ride through Bhutan, the drivers arrived in Bangladesh unsure of what to anticipate.
