We were just beyond the last U bend,
and a Mahindra was standing with it engine hood open,
it has not even started the climb to Shingo La from Padum side,
and it was over heating.

So the lead Thar in our group, managed to turn around, going back and forward foot by foot,
then reversed back and we towed the Mahindra to the side of the road,
he had stopped where no one could cross him.

Once we towed him to one side, the lead Thar then keep on going down in reverse to find a place to turn around.
We were on our way now with the other 3 vehicles also crossing the Mahindra.

Before I go further,
let me post some video of the water crossing before Shingo La,
as is was past mid Aug, the water flow now are quite reduced,
you can cross any time of the day, does not matter,
the bad gushing water season is over.

Finally we arrived at Kargyak

The 2 covid shot cert makes no diff,
We had to do RAT,
wait for 10 min for the result,
and we were allowed to continue.
