Default Ice Road Truckers Deadliest Roads (India)

The History channel (US) is airing the new season of Ice Road Truckers and this time it is from India.

Truckers from north America travel to India and put their driving skills to the test on the narrow, treacherous mountain roads that lead from Delhi to Shimla, then up to a hydroelectric dam construction site in the Himalayas.

View more about the show here:

The show does not air in India. As a matter of fact, history channel does not even exist in India now. It has been replaced by Fox History and Entertainment.
You can watch the entire season on the youtube channel mentioned above.

This show is very entertaining, hilarious and keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can totally understand the truckers frustration regarding our lack of driving sense or for that matter common sense.

I too am in love with Lisa she is simply awesome! I like how Rick loses his cool and reacts. Not to forget his spotter Abdul who teaches him to swear in Hindi.

BTW 3 episodes have already been aired. The 4th episode airs next week. You can subscribe to this youtube channel and view all the episodes and get updates.

Guys i did have a look at the sneak preview a couple of days back. A friend had posted this video in his facebook. I was blown away by the lack of lane discipline in our contry. The kind of near miss these trcukers have and those over taking riskly on the mountain road are nicely explained. Expect for the language part (colurful words used by the truckers and the spotters teaching them hindi words) I am sure these truckers wont have experienced a ride like this ever in their life.
