Zanaskar is beautiful. Even if you don't get a group you should be fine with the ultra reliable Gypsy. We did Zanaskar in 2012 -

Hi Blackpearl,

Yep agreed. Ultra-reliable Gypsy

What scares me is, when i picked up my brand new vehicle from the showroom, the vehicle lost power within a km and stalled. No matter what i tried it wouldnt go even in first gear.

I had to call a mechanic who figured out the brakes were a bit tight and fixed it by loosening it it and i had no issue from then. Now just imagine having such a simple issue in Zanskar that i cant fix myself in the middle of nowhere. Thats what scares me !

That is a one-off case and hopefully nothing should happen in future. But I agree that you need to know some basic stuff to get yourself going in case of an emergency in a remote place if you want to travel alone.
