Putting snow chains on bus tires at high altitude


Traveling is usually a pleasant and relaxing experience, but there may also be difficulties during a journey – especially when you encounter bad weather in a high-altitude area.

A tourist bus was traveling along a snow-covered road at an elevation of 4,646.5 meters (over 15,000 feet) in Ganzi, Sichuan Province, when the driver and tour guide decided to stop and put snow chains on the bus tires to ensure a safe journey. One of the tourists joined them in their attempts.

At high altitudes, people tire more quickly due to the lack of oxygen in the air, which made the task even harder.
