In the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, which, translated from Hindi, means "country of snowy mountains", local rescue services carried out a unique operation to rescue German climbers trapped in a high-altitude ice trap.

The foreigners were evacuated by a rescue helicopter at an altitude considered inaccessible due to the rarefied atmosphere.

According to the Indian Ministry of Emergency Situations, heavy rains have been falling in this region in recent days, quickly followed by frost. This led to numerous landslides and collapses on mountain roads. As a result, both the local population and numerous guests of the state found themselves blocked in the highlands.
