Rasuwa, August 10

Tuesday’s torrential downpour has obstructed roads that lead to the Gosainkunda lake in Rasuwa.

A landslide near the Banuwa Ghumti area has completely halted traffic along the highway, inform officials. The landslide has affected traffic in the Betrawati, Pahirobesi and Mailung areas along the road that leads to Dunche.

This is bad news for people wanting to go to the Gosainkunda lake to celebrate Janaipurnima on Friday. Police have said they will try to clear the road to make sure pilgrims can get to the lake.

Local bus service is being set up to get pilgrims from the area affected by the landslide to Dhunche. Private cars heading towards Dhunche will be affected as a two-kilometre road has been affected due to the landslide.
