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.

Indo - Japanese Workshop on Landslides and Disaster Management in Gangtok (Sikkim) - 14-17Feb2012.
Placed above is a part of the 4 day Indo - Japanese workshop on Landslides and Disaster Management taking place in Gangtok, Sikkim.
Unfortunately, a similar initiative in a contiguous area (Darjeeling district) is nowhere on the anvil and we are likely to face the wrath of the monsoons with little or no preparedness.
