Thar Camping At -20 Degree Celsius
The YouTuber is camping at Tso Moriri in Ladakh and the temperature outside is in the vicinity of -20 degree celsius during the night. This translates to low temperatures even during the day. This is an extreme condition for any automobile to be in. The owner of the Thar has equipped his SUV with rooftop camping gear. The rear of the vehicle features compartments to store essentials to travel solo for days on end. He has a ton of gadgets and appliances to ensure that the basic needs are met. He takes us through the journey of what it feels like to survive in such conditions. Another reason for him to be doing this is the fact that the Manali-Leh highway was blocked due to extreme conditions. He is essentially stuck in this situation.
Thar is a capable off-roader and also has the necessary strength to survive in such harsh weather scenarios. The YouTuber shows that the electronic gadgets have stopped functioning as the batteries are heavily degraded in such cold. The next day, he tries to start the Thar using another battery. It took a few tries but finally, he was able to start his vehicle. He was able to make it out of there and it is hard to imagine any other vehicle to be able to allow him to commute in such conditions. Many people are aware of the capabilities of the Thar and that is the reason why there is still around 12 months of waiting time on it in some cities.
