In the video, the vlogger and his companion are seen navigating their luxury SUVs through the hills of Himachal Pradesh, India. After refueling at the highest retail outlet of Indian Oil, situated at an elevation of 3,740 meters above sea level, they continue their journey until encountering a snow-covered stretch of road. Here, the presenter attempts to traverse the snow with his Land Cruiser LC300, only to find it stuck shortly afterward. Despite efforts to assist with the Land Rover Defender, both vehicles end up trapped.

Subsequently, after futile attempts to free the Land Rover Defender, the Land Cruiser LC300 also becomes lodged in the same ditch. Despite their advanced features like crawl mode and 4 low mode, both SUVs remain stuck. Eventually, the Land Rover Defender manages to extricate the Land Cruiser LC300 from the snow, allowing both vehicles to continue their journey after the temporary setback.

The incident underscores the importance of proper preparation when traversing challenging terrain. Factors such as the absence of all-terrain tires, reliance on standard highway tires, and the lack of snow chains contributed to the vehicles’ predicament. However, the SUV drivers’ foresight in carrying rescue equipment and their strategic approach to managing the situation ensured the successful recovery of both vehicles. This serves as a valuable lesson in the significance of preparedness and prudent decision-making when venturing into demanding environments.
