This would be an epic drive/ride for sure. 70 hairpin bends!

How challenging is this going to be on a Baleno CVT? I have never done these many hairpins before.

Should not be a problem. I don't think Baleno would have any drawbacks to tackle the hairpins. Just take one hairpin at a time

The problem is not the car. Car will climb up and come down without any fuss. If you are any sort of enthusiastic driver, your left leg and left arm will be screaming out for a manual gearbox

I would love to attend this meet, however with a 0.8L Hyundai Eon, I'm not too sure if I should go ahead with this. Can anyone here comment on how difficult or easy it is to take those bends?

If these cars manage Spiti and related areas daily, why not! Only issue is when you will get there, not if!
