We are just a few kilometres ahead of Kaza, and we are stuck on a slight inclination near Lidang. The continuous snowfall outside the car has forced us to head back to Kaza again.
Turning the car around was a task in itself, but we somehow managed the task. Meanwhile we were passed by a Maruti Gyspy, which had not been able to get through the snow to Tabo inspite of being a four wheel drive. They had to turn back from Mane Dhank.
Looking at the scenario I think we have made a wise decision of turning around as our car didn’t have a four wheel drive option, nor chains to tie around the tyre to get a better grip on the snow covered road.
