- As far as i have heard. Bridges washed includes
Karcham and choling. So entry to Rekong Peo, Kalpa and
interior kinnaur through NH-22 is blocked.
While entry to sangla valley through private bridge of
Jai Prakash industries is open (as main bridge is
washed away) small vehicles only. So tourists would
have to re think the plans for foray in kinnaur. Those
visting Sangla can do so. News story follows.
Sunday, June 26, 2005 (New Delhi):
A high alert has been sounded in areas along the
Sutlej river valley in Himachal Pradesh following a
sudden rise in the level of the Parechu.
The water level of Parechu, a tributary of Satluj
which rose by 40 to 50 feet has been attributed to the
melting of glaciers.
Local officials say at least two upstream bridges have
been washed away and traffic was disrupted on the
Hindustan-Tibet highway, which serves as a crucial
road link to the remote border areas.
According to latest reports, water has reportedly
entered Rampur - a major town on the banks of the
"The waters entered around 5 pm. It rose by 10-12 feet
but they later started receding," said D K Rattam,
About 5,000 people from various parts of the valley
have been evacuated. The people living along the banks
of Sutlej were shifted to safer places as a
Adding to the concern is the danger posed by the lake
formed by landslides on the Parechu in Tibet. Many
fear that this lake could burst causing a flash flood.
Officials think that the sudden rise in the Parechu
could be because this lake is leaking or because of
rapidly melting snow.
In a bid to assess the situation, the Centre held an
emergency meeting today.
"Nearly 5,000 people from three villages along the
200-km stretch of Sutlej river have been evacuated to
safer places as a precautionary measure," Home
Secretary V K Duggal told reporters.
The hour-long emergency meeting was chaired by Cabinet
Secretary B K Chaturvedi in which secretaries of all
ministries and army and para-military forces were
Duggal said MI-7 and MI-8 helicopters have been asked
to be ready at Chandigarh airbase to meet any
Air Force on standby
The high alert has been sounded in the areas of
Kinnaur, Rampur, Mandi and Bilaspur. The highway
leading to Kinnaur has been closed to traffic.
Meanwhile, IAF choppers carried out a recce operation
to assess the flood situation in Himachal Pradesh.
"The Air Force is standing by to help the state
government in evacuation and rescue and relief
operations," Airforce spokesman Squadron Leader Mahesh
"We have all the arrangements ready. All the officials
know about this and people have been cautioned," said
Vidhya Stokes, Power Minister, Himachal Pradesh.
Meanwhile, the Chinese Ambassador to India has assured
India a regular exchange of information on the
situation of the artificial lake formed on the Parechu
river in Tibet just before it enters India.
Nathpa power project
The Nathpa-Jhakri project Authority, which shut down
its power station yesterday due to heavy silting,
opened the gates of the dam to flush out water.
According to reports, the discharge of water in Satluj
at Nathpa was 1600 cumex (Cubic metres per sec)
resulting in silt content to 8000 ppm (parts per
million), which was 3000 ppm above the maximum
On its part, the government says the Nathpa-Jhakri
power project which supplies the northern grid is
unaffected and is shut for routine maintenance.
The alert in the Sutlej valley is likely to continue
for the next few days. But with the monsoon hitting
Himachal Pradesh today the situation is likely to
remain tense. (With PTI inputs)

- Dear Tenzin
Satluj was all fury.. was at Luhri bridge when water passed through.
Satluj was just 5 feet the bridge.. Last time it was flowing above the
bridge. Was at Rampur yesterday.. Nogli is washed up... the BBMB
chowki just after Nogli is washed up.. The river cut though the road.
Again the road near Nirmand bridge has been washed out. The new bridge
to Nirmand is still there but the old bailey bridge was washed off.
Road has been cleared till Tapri.. Peo will be open in a few days.
- Hi Nitiin
Thanx for the information. Yes, i followed up on the
situation back home. It wasn`t rosy. The improtance of
this highway is clearly not lost on anyone(state and
centre). I have heard that the PWD is trying hard on
I think GOVT of Himachal should hand over the road to
BRO( Border Road organisation) back from Rampur to
Kaurik. Right now they handle it somewhere around
Tapri. Those people have the necessary
manpower,expertise and infrastructure to properly
address these issues at war footing, its apart of
Ministry of Defense if people are wondering. So, the
central govt foots in the bill. Remember, this road
used to fall under BRO but was given back to state
govt sometime in early 80`s.
Without roads anyplace is as backward as you can
imagine. If i am not wrong, those roadblocked regions
right now would be seeing prices skyrocketing and
blackmarketing taking over. I sincerely hope that
those are under check. There is sufficient storage
facility in kinnaur to last for 2 to 3 months, so the
onus is on the local administration now. Common people
should not be made to pay for nature`s fury.
Satluj in its fury is unrepenting and those who have
seen the river would know what i am talking about.
Let`s hope that before the cash crops like apple and
other fruits start moving out, roads are ready unlike
2001 when crores worth of apples got rotten. The army
and navy did a splendid job back then though.
While the national limelight has been lost again from
the issue due to unprecedented damage in gujarat. I
sincerely hope that the central govt is chalking some
strategy to handle this issue. May be, build a new
Hindustan Tibet road high up in the reaches. If you
people dont remeber, this used to be the case before
NH 22 opened up. The earlier road used to be from
Sarahan and ended up in sangla if i am not wrong, it
was a narrow jeep road basically. This route is still
being used for trekking purpose and by shepherds,
gujjars alike. (Its very scenic as it moves along the
Moreover Himachal govt needs a new Public relation
head too. This flooding made people believe that it
affected the whole of himachal which led to
cancellation of torusits during the peak season. All
this tourism and internal development is a sham if we
dont have a robust communication and transportation
line. Infrastucture development should be a priority
and the development shouldnt be restricted to some
pockets of himachal.
