    Default 16400feet-Snow mountain climbing on my PradoTZ V6



    Guys.. Went on my Prado TZ V6 petrol all the way from Hyderabad Sindh to the extream Norths- Kashmir and Gilgit agerncy ! 16400 feet above sea level- no track no road- all extream offroading to a unknown destination somewhere near Nultur in search of a ski point my father used to ski when he was training for a snow survival course back in 1975 in pakistan Air Force... we were astrayed and in confusion went on and on with my family alone on prado with no track all snow high till we reached the peak top of the mountain.. we were alone my father, me, my mother and sister and no other vehicle to assist..


    Ascending was difficult used low range 4x4... traction was way dangerous on the narrow path we waded all the way to the top of the mountain in the snow but real task was descending the mountains where a couple of times the departure angle was so deep that it felt like falling from the sky when prado skided...


    Miracalusly , we made our way after 7 hours of extream adventure to the ski point... here are some of the pics took.... if there was another vehicle to accompany and to take pics and video while i was driving--- it would have been great to share with you all..


    Prado is no doubt a very reliable yet luxurious off-road character which even made a moderate driver like me to do such extream off road adventure with family...

    I felt no difficulties what so ever.... Had normal super petrol fueled into my prado.... No problem what so ever... on the Peak of Pirchanaasi Mount Behind the tourist Point it was 3760meters max on the Altitude meter... I havent got the Pic...


    Regarding 16400feet so thats correct ... It is highier then Khunjarab paas... Khunjraab paas is a paved road while where I went In Naltar wasnt... it was a Just a series of high hindukash Mountains I was driving on it in much severe driving conditions then the Pirchanasi summit in search of the Ski point...


    Breathing wasnt mentionlably difficult or hard .... yes it was a different feeling then normal... the altitude at unknown Mountain paas was 5380meter so calculated it roughly in feet...

    U really need very good brakes and tyres ... when I descended finnally safe... the brakes were lava hot as you can feel the heat standing way far from them...


    Never decend with D on the transmission.. use D2 or L the same applies to steep hill climb... H4 on the 4x4 all the time to keep the traction and in deep snow low range for sure... never put full throttle even if you are stuck... it skides like crazy with no rule... so be gentle

    Nice. You should have taken off the side panels and skirts just to be on the safe side and give you some more room on obstacles.
