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.

At the Summit on Sustainable Mountain Development in Naini Tal (UttarKhand) - 21/22May2011
It was my privilege to attend the 2 day Summit on Sustainable Mountain Development held on 21/22May2011 at Naini Tal, Uttarkhand. The summit was the brainchild of Dr RS Tolia (IAS) former Chief Secretary Uttar Khand and currently Chairman, CHEA.
Besides being an immense learning experience, it gave us a tremendous opportunity to interact with the huge pool of resource people and delegates who attended the seminar.
I would like to thank Mr PD Rai, MP of Sikkim for making this possible and Mr RP Gurung of ECOSS for all his help.
