From Save The Hills: Impact of landslides : Gandhi Ashram School at 6th Mile (Kalimpong) decides to shift

Save The Hills shares the sad news about the necessity of Kalimpong’s acclaimed Gandhi Ashram school relocating to a safer place due to landslide threats.

visions of hell: Impact of landslides : Gandhi Ashram School at 6th Mile (Kalimpong) decides to shift

Gandhi Ashram School at 6th Mile (Upper Tashiding) Kalimpong is a school which was founded in 1993 by the late Father Ed McGuire s.j, a Jesuit priest from Canada. It is a unique school in many respects and is a must-see site for any visitor to Kalimpong…

… the school is now compelled to shift to a (hopefully safer) location due to subsidence in the entire school premises – the cause is scouring and erosion by a natural rivulet or jhora which runs just below the school.

Follow the link above for the complete story and images. Here’s one of the photographs.
