The highlight of the seminar was the field visit on 12Mar2011, to landslide affected areas towards Kalimpong. Some 80-90 students, resource persons of eminence and faculty members of various universities took part in the day long visit and were shown the subsidence areas at the 27th Mile NHPC stage III Lo Dam and then the severe landslides and erosion caused by the jhora at Pashyor at 3rd Mile, Kalimpong.
I do hope and believe that prestigious institutions such as NBU will help us highlight the severity of the landslide problem in our area.
