Bollywood movie 3 Idiots Sonam Wangchung is known as the source of the story. He designed a tent to help soldiers camped in a cold region like Ladakh. It weighs 30 kg and is easy to carry. The tent can accommodate up to 10 soldiers at a time.
This tent is best suited for use in areas with freezing temperatures ranging from 0 to minus 14 degrees.
