    Flagged off on 11th August from Mandi (Himachal Pradesh), the Season 2 concluded on 21st August when the women riders successfully scaled 18,340 feet to reach Khardung La. The 10 riders who accompanied Anam on this epic ride were Megha Chakraborty (Bilaspur), Kainoor Mistry (Mumbai), Roshni Somkuwar (Nagpur), Garima Kapoor (Lucknow), Ebronah Dorothy (Chennai), Pallavi Fauzdar (Delhi), Antara Pal (Bengaluru), Trupti Sarmalkar (Mumbai), Surbhi Tiwari (Bengaluru) and Shruthi Naidu (Bengaluru).

    Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President – Marketing (Scooters), TVS Motor Company, said,
    “The Season 2 of Himalayan Highs has been a grand success and we are elated that the initiative was recognized by the India Book of Records. The riders showed true grit and determination battling the weather and altitude, while they rode TVS Scooty Zest 110 to the record books. This month has been a month of highs for the Indian women across the globe and we are happy our riders have also earned glory. These 11 women riders are an example of the new age Indian women and an inspiration to those who want to pursue their dreams.”
    Anam Hashim said,
    “I would like to thank TVS Motor Company for letting me lead this group of enthusiastic women riders to set a new record at Khardung La. It wasn’t an easy ride to the top as our mental and physical fitness was put to the test with the unpredictable weather and harsh environment. The nimble, however strong and powerful TVS Scooty Zest 110 yet again proved to be a wonderful, able and reliable companion to the girls as they rode to Khardung La without a hitch.”
    Roshni Somkuwar (Rider) said,
    “Himalayan Highs Season 2 by TVS Scooty Zest 110 was a great opportunity to live my dream. Thanks to the support from my parents and college authorities, I was lucky to be a part of this memorable ride with so many different women with shared passion. We scaled the heights together and opened our mind to new experiences and challenges. It will be one of the true HIGHS of my life and I will cherish this ride and my TVS Scooty Zest 110 forever.”
    Ebronah Dorothy (Rider) said,
    “The Himalayan Highs opportunity was exactly what I was looking for and setting a new record was the icing on the cake. As a passionate rider, my initial apprehensions were about braving the toughest terrains on a 110 cc scooter. However, the journey on the TVS Scooty Zest 110 provided an amazing riding experience, despite the hostile landscape.”
    Himalayan Highs Season 2 kicked off in June 2016 and witnessed massive response across the country with about 50,000 enquiries from women riders and enthusiasts across all 29 states and select union territories. The applicants were evaluated and shortlisted based on psychographics, physical fitness, mental strength and then they were trained as they came with different riding prowess.

    Nice, but now they seriously need a powerful 125CC scoot.
    Now that they have one of the best suspension set up for a scooter and a very refined and reliable 110cc mill, which can cruise at > 70 kmph for hours, with zero vibes, Its time to move up the table .
