a) They were first taken to the massive erosion and landslides caused by the natural rivulets (jhoras) at Pashyor
b) We then visited Sindebung village to see the impact of landslides on a farming community. The team interacted with villagers who had lost land, property and livelihoods to landslides. The village has been featured on this blog many, many times (Slides 3&4).
c) This was followed by a visit to Dhobi Dhara village which is densely populated near the Sub-Divisional Hospital (Slide 5).
d) Lastly, the whole team was briefed by Wg Cdr Praful Rao (retd) on landslides situation around Kalimpong and landslides in general in a powerpoint presentation.
