Good recovery by the folks.
On the way up, Khan and me were predicting a land slide at this spot and our predictions never go wrong

You will know better than my analysis as you were on field.
[b]Regards,
The earth was old but had already caved in a bit on the LT side, when we went up. Right side of the Gurkha is a nice drop and if that side caved in, the horn would be right now lodged in very uncomfortable place!!

But seriously i don't think those metal horns are pedestrian or passenger safe, in an unfortunate situation!

So mostly the driver took a safe approach leaving some space on RT, i cant blame him, and would have done the same.

We heard that if the alternate route is not identified by night fall there was possibility of a night stay. That would have been fun, no water, food or ciggies!!!

You have no idea the amount of curiosity it generates! Among locals and participants as well!

Spidey was going parallel through the ditch, not struggling to climb out. There was absolutely no safety concern in this case.

may be I was being paranoid, but I have seen vehicles going in direction they don't intend to go in such terrains
