Maruti Suzuki Spiti Valley car workshop inauguration a boon for tourists to Ladakh

Maruti Suzuki has oft been recognized for their expansive sales and service network in India. Now they boast of another feather in their cap with the opening of a car workshop at Kaza in the Lahaul and Spiti district at an altitude of 3,740 meters. What this means for travelers who’re headed to the Ladakh region via the Manali route can’t be undermined, especially since so many pass Keylong each year. Other areas that will be catered to by the Kaza workshop will be Kibber, Rangnik, Losar, and Hanse.

The latest endevour beats their previous achievement of having a workshop at Leh at 3,505 meters, which is a blessing for those traveling to Ladakh via Srinagar. Needless to say operating here is a difficult proposition attributed to high altitude, and the valley remains inaccessible for 4 months a year due to snowfall. Currently Maruti services the Indian car market through 2992 workshops spread across 1406 cities.
Maruti Suzuki India Ltd (MSIL), executive officer (service), Pankaj Narula, had this to say. "It is a challenge operating a service station in such conditions but it will help cater to our growing number of customers in the region and also to the high tourist traffic." Last summer the Rushlane team embarked upon it's maiden Ladakh trip through roads unimaginable, and is happy to give readers an insight as to why a Maruti workshop at that altitude is an absolute must.
