Here is an article about it: Nine killed after boulder crashes into tourist vehicle in KinnaurWow!
Sangla, in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh, shows large chunks of rock breaking off a mountaintop and rolling down into the valley below.
The video sumarizes all the shooting stars in seconds from la Hita Astronomical Observatory in Toledo.
These images show, despite that Perseides are still away two days away from reaching their maximum activity, it is already possible to see a good number of them.
More than 200 personnel, including from the army, paramilitary forces and local police, are working along a stretch of National Highway 5 that runs along the Sutlej river and connects northern India to the border with China, officials said.
Local police chief Saju Ram Rana said the landside, which happened around noon on Wednesday, loosened large boulders and sent them cascading down the steep mountainside, blocking about 150 meters of the highway.
"The debris fell from quite high up," Rana told Reuters, adding that heavy machinery was being brought in to clear the area.
In pictures shared by authorities on social media, helmeted rescue workers can be seen scrambling around the mangled remains of vehicles stranded among rocks and loose earth.
In late July, at least nine people were killed by a landslide in a different part of Kinnaur district, and dozens have been left stranded by landslides and flooding in recent weeks in another area of Himachal Pradesh, a scenic Himalayan state popular with tourists. read more
