Ahead of Mane Dhank Bridge, Himachal Pradesh, India, 29 January 2017, 1114 hours:
The bulldozer is turning back, since they don’t have orders to open this road. It’s now us, a Gypsy ahead of us, and the snow climb ahead.
The Gypsy is a 4×4 drive so it has cut through the snow and moved ahead. Our Xylo is stuck. Looks like we will be stuck in the snow on this mountain.
We are continuously studying the snow-covered slopes above us since we are in avalanche zone.
