Landslides hit Lamjung-Manang road


Sep 14, 2018-

The Lamjung-Manang road section has been disrupted following landslides at several areas from Besisahar to Chyame.

The route has been damaged by mudslides and flood at various places and it is expected to take at least a month to restore the road section.

Lamjung Chief District Officer, Jhankanath Dhakal, said the Road Division Office has already been directed to begin the repair works.

The Kharkhare section at Besisahar-6, Arkhale at Marsyangdi-3, Ghopte Cliff at Marsyangdi-4, Shreeechaur and Chyame have been largely affected by landslides while flash floods from the Arkhale and Topro rivers have eroded the road at various areas.

The flash floods swept away one tractor and three motorcycles, causing damages to a truck and two jeeps.

Vehicles en route to Manang from Lamjung and vice-versa have been left stranded midway, said transport entrepreneur Bipin Shrestha.

Likewise, transporting of daily essentials to Manang district has been severely affected following the landslides since yesterday and have made the people's movement difficult and risky.

A joint security team from the Nepal Police and Nepal Army rescued over 30 passengers Thursday. RSS
