There is a landslide between Ghunsa and Khambachen which is active and highly unstable.
Since Blue Sheep can easily climb steep rocks and walls there is a likelihood that Blue Sheep are around this area. Unfortunately, there is a higher risk of rock fall if there are Blue Sheep on or above the landslide area. So please check and be extra careful if they are around.
Teamwork is the key to crossing a landslide carefully.
Landslide between Ghunsa & Khambachen
- Always leave a gap of at least a meter between each person.
- One member of staff should be at each end of the landslide armed with a whistle or similar devise.
- Each trekker will be sent over by the guide individually, stopping if the whistle is sounded. Start walking again when the all-clear whistle is sounded.
While crossing the landslide it’s impossible to see what is going on above and around you, hence the staff member at each end of the landslide with a whistle he can blow if there is a rock fall. Sounds like a lot of work but better safe than sorry!
