Landslide and slide prone zones in the vicinity of Kalimpong

I don't know why I didn't do this earlier..
Placed above is a rough sketch of Kalimpong town with SOME of the landslide affected areas.. ("some" because the smaller slide zones are not shown)
Except for Samthar and Mangbol, I have visited all the places; some, many times during the course of the past 6 months (and often with scientists, students and the local media).
Detailed reports and photographs from these areas are available on this blogsite.

This is good news that people from abroad are taking interest is this issue and are actually coming to the hills physically to see and gain awareness of the erosion to our Eco system. Well done Praful bhai and your colleagues involved.
