The Drive As It Happened

Starting from Manali and going through the high passes of Leh Ladakh, a total of 20 adventure-seeking customers participated. The customers took their reliable and capable Isuzu D-MAX V-Cross and MU-X on their conquest to conquer the mountain trails of Ladakh. The trip then went through the high passes of Leh Ladakh via Zanskar valley. With this route, customers also got to explore hidden routes, mountain trails, and unseen lakes while also witnessing the beauty of the Himalayas with enticing views. Isuzu also conducted a special interaction session in Leh at the ITBP camp for the customers. Here, the customer understood how the forces operate in challenging conditions, which was quite an overwhelming experience.
