Images from Mamring

On the 29Jun2008 at around 0630hrs, Mamring (above), a quaint little village in Kurseong subdivision of Darjeeling district was almost flattened by a gigantic rock slide.
Huge boulders, some the size of a small house, came crashing down from a hill directly above the village causing many residents to be evacuated..
Though there were no casualties, the threat to Mamring village from the rock slides is real and likely to increase as the monsoon progresses.
