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.
Rainfall information of the region is shown above. Towards the end of April2019, the first low pressure area of the year formed in the Bay of Bengal; it eventually became Cyclone 'FANI'. No landslides were reported in April2019 in our region.
