Tata Nano driven to the Base Camp of Siachen Glacier in Ladakh

Tata Nano driven to the Base Camp of Siachen Glacier in Ladakh

A Tata Nano owner in India drove his car from West Bengal to the Base Camp of Siachen Glacier in Ladakh. This base camp is also considered as the highest battlefield on earth and reaching it is no mean feat.

Dr. Varun Vagish drove his Nano for 20 days while covering 7,000 kms over the entire journey. His drive started from Asansol in West Bengal and further continued onto the rough terrains and that too despite the difficult weather conditions. On the course, the Nano climbed Khardung La which is considered as the world's highest motorable pass further going to cover other passes like Chang La, Zozi La, Fotu La and Namik La and finally reaching the Base Camp of the Siachen Glacier.

Varun Vagish, an adventurist and car enthusiast from Asansol, West Bengal, said, "Being a rear wheel drive car, Tata Nano was a mobile powerhouse while climbing the steep inclines of the highest mountain passes. Lowest turning radius also helped me to easily manoeuvre the vehicle on sharp curves. It just took 30 minutes to climb the last 16-kilometre stretch from North-Pullu to Khardung La. In the plains, it was driven more than 800kms in a day at few instances. During the whole journey, I felt immense respect for the whole team of Tata Motors who conceptualised and shaped this beautiful vehicle."

It is interesting to see many such enthusiasts taking their vehicles to some of the most inaccessible regions in India. They not only test themselves by facing the odds, but also test the vehicle for its endurance and reliability on such drives.
