Team OD and readers headed to the clearest night skies in the Spiti valley and experienced a road trip like no other. We had a convoy of four of Mercedes-Benz's finest SUVs with us on this incredible adventure. You can take a look at pictures of the luxury SUVs hereor scroll down for some sights of the incredibly beautiful landscape we drove through. Enjoy.
