Land Rover took its 70th
anniversary celebrations to new heights by visiting a remote rural community in
West Bengal that relies on a fleet of classic models for its very survival. Known
as the ‘Land of Land Rovers’, the rural location deep in the Himalayas is
reliant on a fleet of meticulously maintained Series Land Rovers dating back as
far as 1957.
film has been released that highlights the spectacular 31 km journey made often
by residents of Maneybhanjang in West Bengal, India to Sandakphu for their
means of living. Towering gradients, rock-strewn pony tracks and treacherous
weather are just some of the hazards faced on a daily basis by the residents
and their Land Rovers on the journey to the hilltop village, which sits at an
altitude of approximately 3 636 m.

remarkable collection of Series models, which provides a vital role for the
community as reliable and unstoppable all-terrain transport.

the original Land Rover made its debut at Amsterdam Motor Show in 1948. Land
Rover is marking this milestone with a series of celebrations throughout 2018,
