This is a perfect story to make us all realize the comforts that we are getting from the all-mighty. The story is from the Himalayan region of Ladakh which seems to have happened in early 2014 as per DailyMail
Family members carried supplies for the 8 day trek like this
Due to lack of infrastructure, this family had to walk through some of the toughest conditions on the planet, in winters, for 45 miles or 70km. It took them 8 days and involved walking through snow, ice and on the frozen Zanskar river.
The nearest hospital was 8 days away by walk but that did not deter this local Ladakhi family. Temperatures easily drop to as low as -30 degree Celsius in winters. No internet, no mobile, no civilization - nothing!
I will let the images do the talking here - these were shot by a tourist, Tim Vollmer from Iceland, who was on the famous 'Chadar Trek' which involves walking on the frozen river. All image credits go to DailyMail UK / Caters News Agency
The precious little one : he/she must be almost 4 years old now :)
Family members couldnt leave the sibling behind - this is how they carried him/her
They took night shelter in mountain caves and lit up fire for warmth
At times, they had to be careful with the luggage so as not to drop it into the icy waters
This is how they packed the little bundle of joy
