Landslides are common in north Sikkim. On the night of our stay at Lachung, it rained heavily resulting in series of landslides between Lachung and Chungthang. Since the roads are vital links to army supplies, BRO gets it cleared as early as possible. The impact of landslide for us was minor as we headed to Yumthang in the morning. On our way back to Gangtok in the afternoon, most of the landslides were cleared expect one. We had to wait for an hour while the BRO team managed to clear the debris off the road.
