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.

Upcoming events : DRR Seminar on ' How safe are our Mountain Habitats?' at Kalimpong on 17Aug2015
With the weather exhibiting mood swings as in a bi-polar disorder, Kalimpong has been reeling under a spate of landslides (see previous blog) and it is therefore apt that we have chosen this town as the venue of a DRR seminar on 'How safe are our Mountain Habitats?'
The seminar is the initiative of the Darjeeling Chapter of InMI ( of which STH is a member)
