Chandigarh, January 9

In awe of a phenomenal road with 70 continuous hairpin bends in Tamil Nadu, industrialist Anand Mahindra took to twitter to express his admiration for the engineering marvel. He retweeted a picture shared by Norwegian diplomat and former politician Erik Solheim and wrote, “Erik you keep showing me how little I know about my own country! This is just phenomenal. I want to find out who built this road and then I will only trust my Thar to take me on it!”

Appreciating the aerial shot, Erik captioned it, “Incredible India! One of the most daring mountain roads of India with 70 continuous hairpin bends. Kolli hills road, Namakkal, Tamil Nadu.”

Since the picture caught the attention of Anand Mahindra, the Chairperson of Mahindra and Mahindra, it has accumulated over 13,000 likes and many comments.

Some of the Twitter users also shared they have travelled on the road. One user wrote, “I have driven my Thar (2015 model) on this. Climbs like it was born for this. Climbing was effortless. I have climbed the Kalhatti ghat section to Ooty in Thar which is much steeper. Again, the Thar loves the curves and the climb.”

Another user said, “Really incredible,” a third user commented, “Sir please take me with you, when you’re going.”
