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.

July Rainfall (2007-2009)
The variation in the rainfall pattern is extraordinary and for second consecutive year we are below our monthly average.

My thanx to Ms Kanta Pradhan of Compuset, Gandhi Road, Darjeeling for the rainfall data.
