Last December, Nidhi Tiwari made headlines when she drove 23,800 km from Delhi to London in 97 days in an all-woman expedition with her friends. This year, she’s set to make news again with another extreme expedition.
Tiwari has just completed a 5,000 km road trip in Siberia during the peak of the region’s infamously harsh winter. She is the first Indian to drive to Oymyakon, considered to be the coldest permanently inhabited place on earth. “I have an innate need to put myself out there and test my limits,” Tewari told HuffPost India during her drive. “So after Delhi to London, it had to be a bigger challenge.”
