Narkanda Town Devastated by Massive Landslide, Causing Irreparable Loss to Apple and Cherry Orchard

Narkanda Town faced an unprecedented catastrophe as a massive landslide struck NH 5 earlier this week, wreaking havoc on the region’s agricultural landscape. The disaster resulted in the complete destruction of a flourishing Apple and Cherry Orchard, spanning over an extensive 30 Bigha (approximately 12.3 hectares) of land, leaving the local community in a state of shock and mourning the loss of their cherished livelihoods.

The landslide’s repercussions extended beyond the agricultural sector, impacting the transportation infrastructure, with NH 5 experiencing partial blockages in the disaster’s wake.

In the wake of this disaster, experts have raised concerns over the escalating vulnerability of hillside regions to such natural calamities, attributing it to the adverse effects of climate change and deforestation. Environmentalists are urging the authorities to adopt sustainable land management practices and invest in early warning systems to mitigate future risks.

The landslide has also brought about economic hardship, affecting the livelihoods of countless families who relied on the orchard’s produce to make ends meet. With the destruction of this vital agricultural asset, the loss of income is acutely felt, leaving families struggling to put food on the table and meet their basic needs.
