Shigo-Lidang, Himachal Pradesh, India, 25 January 2017, 0950 hours:
Average speed of a vehicle differs in different parts of Himachal Pradesh and further differs during different road conditions and even more so in different seasons, and finally qualified by on-the-day weather.
Today, our average speed will be 15 km/h, if we are lucky. Right now, we are stuck in snow a kilometre away from Lidang, the wheels are going round and round and we are staying put. Abhishek and Abhinav are out in the pouring snow and howling wind, trying to clear a path with Sanju, Suresh and Ameen. 🤣
