Uttarakhand: Massive landslide in Badrinath route, 15,000 tourists stranded

At least 15,000 tourists are reportedly stranded after a massive landslide occurred in Uttarakhand’s Badrinath route near Vishnuprayag . The landslide blocked the Rishikesh-Badrinath National Highway in Chamoli district after which District Collector Ashish Joshi said BRO (Border Roads Organisation) personnel are engaged in clearing the roads. Prone to frequent landslides and floods, Uttarakhand had faced one of the worst natural disaster in 2013 when thousands had perished following a cloudburst. The administration is making all efforts to provide all facilities to 1,000-1,500 pilgrims who are at Joshimath, Karnaprayag, Pipalkoti, Govindghat and Badrinath.
