indian people near the darjeeling road landslide (india)


The road to Darjeeling (India) comes to an abrupt end due to a major landslide that occurred in June 2010.­

Those people live in houses very close to the landslide, which luckily did not kill anyone or destroyed any home.­

They are sitting on a broken rail from the Darjeeling "Toy Trail" railroad, which was running along this road.­

View my other photos of the broken road and landslide.

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
