According to an Australian expert, the rescue mission to save men trapped in a Himalayan tunnel is one of the most challenging endeavors they’ve encountered.

The lead Australian expert overseeing the operation to rescue 41 workers trapped in a collapsed tunnel in India emphasized the extreme difficulty of the mission. Professor Arnold Dix, an engineering expert and president of the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association, explained the unique challenges posed by the Himalayas, describing them as a geologically dynamic mountain range prone to instability. As rescuers, including Professor Dix, continue their efforts in the 4.5-kilometer tunnel in Uttarakhand state, where the collapse occurred on November 12, the exact cause remains undisclosed, though the region is known for its susceptibility to landslides, earthquakes, and floods.
