--> Pregnant Mother Walks 8 Days In -35 Degrees To Deliver Her Child

in news •  9 months ago

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

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

l8.jpgAt 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

Woah! This is something about Ladakh that is never highlighted. We just showcase the rides, promote tourism but never have I came across something like this. Thanks, sir!
Just curious how they didn't bump into our army. They would have surely helped the family.


Good question there - Army is not too common on this route as this route is away from the border area. My 2 cents


Oh! that figures. Love your writing style btw!

A mother will do anything for her child. God bless her


Well said

Oh boy, I can’t imagine! The conditions are bad enough, but then add that she was 9 months pregnant! Reminds me of how fortunate I was to give birth to my baby girl in the comfort of my home with no complications.


True. My respect for people of Ladakh went up ten times after knowing about this case
