SaveTheHills(STH) is a group of concerned citizens who are raising awareness about landslides in Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya.
Many landslides are the direct or indirect result of human interference and preventable if sufficient care is taken.
As such, unless we begin a comprehensive and sustained program towards landslide management, prevention and mitigation, the consequences of ignoring years of human callousness will, in the future be devastating.

An invitation for the 2nd India Disaster Management Congress in Delhi (04Nov-06Nov09)
STH (with a lot of help from the affected people of Chibo and Pashyor) had in the first week of Sep2009 submitted a paper to the 2nd India Disaster Management Congress (IDMC) about the vulnerability of Chibo - Pashyor to landslides and the urgent necessity for a long term solution. The same has been accepted formally as a part of the documentation for the Congress.
As such STH has officially been invited to the Congress and I will certainly attend the IDMC2.
