A landslide that occurred at Chhairo in Gharapjhong Rural Municipality-2, Mustang, following a heavy snowfall obstructed Kaligandaki River on Wednesday morning, raising flood fears. Police said despite the initial flood fears due to the river damming, the river resumed its natural course much to the respite of the locals. 

“The river is flowing through a narrow passage as the landslide debris have not cleared completely. But there is no imminent threat of flood,” said police Inspector Thaman Bahadur Rajali.

A slope on the eastern side of Samagri Village along the Beni-Jomsom road section had collapsed into the river.
