I went with 2 kids and they enjoyed the bumpy ride. Route looks scary initially, but its safe as there wont be much traffic on the way. Jeep takes anything between 2000-3000 depending upon ur start location.

I wont prefer it, you have to spend a lot spoiling your shock absorbers after the 3 hrs of drive on the road. also some of the places the curves are steep and difficult to turn.
