TVS Himalayan Highs started in 2015 when India`s Youngest Women stunt rider Anam Hashim took her TVS ScootyZest 110 scooter on a trip to Khardung La, a mountain pass in the Himalayas making heads turn on the treacherous mountain roads and everywhere else across the country.

It has celebrated the human spirit and prowess of the TVS Zest 110. We thank the vast numbers of the brand lovers who encouraged us through their support on social media. TVS Zest 110 has clearly shown that it has what it takes to take on any challenge, even a Himalayan challenge."
DriveSpark was invited to join the 12 riders as they rode their way up to Khardung la, the highest motorable pass in the country, which sits over 18,000 feet above sea level.
Despite crazy heights through which they travelled which saw air become scarcer by the foot, both the riders and the Scooty Zest 110 motored through the mountains showing extreme resilience as they traversed through some of the most treacherous and breathtaking roads in the world.
