    How hard can it be ? This is a phrase commonly used by one very popular BBC presenter, Mr Jeremy Clarkson when they attempt something preposterous like crossing Africa in FWD cars or driving to North Pole OR (in my case) driving a Fiat Linea across the length of India and up and over some of the most difficult passes in the world. Here are some teasers:cool::cool:

    Wonderful Rohit. :clapping

    I am thrilled with these pictures. This is the second Linea which I am aware of to conquer the Himalayas after J.Ravi sirs.
    Come on Punto owners. I am yet to see one there. :)

    An awesome effort there Rohit. Major props to you. Do write a travelogue as well. We'd love to read.

    Ex FIAT CEO Mr. Kapoor drove one T-Jet to Leh as well. Stuffed with all head honchos of FIAT. He shared this fact at the 2012 launch event. ;)

    It should have been wonderful experience Rohit. Do post the complete travelogue including the planning phase, We're planning to take this trip in Aug'2013 and it should be useful for that.

    Yeah Yeah - We're hearing it Miss.Linea ;)

    But there was someone from Bangalore who posted a TL to Leh with his 90HP, Unable to find that though.
