Nepal is a country where annual monsoon rains cause large damages

to landscape, infrastructure, farming and livestock.

Monsoon rains provoke landslides, rock slides, avalanches, flash floods

and collapse entire villages of remote area farm-houses by washing

away their very foundations.

The main reason for this vulnerability is the short distance between high

altitude and the low plains that are stretching towards the border of India.


Nepal belongs to the 20 most Earthquake prone countries on the planet

and is placed as the number 9 in the international Earthquake Watch lists.

Statistically and ever since there are records kept about South East Asian

Earthquakes, large ones that measure above 7.8 on the open end Richter

Scale occur in Nepal around every 65 years.

The reason for this is the restless drift of the Indian sub-continental plate

that pushes northward against the Tibetan plateau at a speed of 2 to 3

centimeter per year. This should be a great cause of worry because the

next big one is now overdue since almost 8 years.
