OKHALDHUNGA, Nov 11: A dry landslide has been reported on the bank of the Dudh Kosi River at Manebhanjyang Rural Municipality-3 of the district for around two weeks. The landslide has started near Chune of the Dudhkosi Corridor Road. 

Harka Bahadur Rai, a local of Unbu, said that the dry landslide has been occurring for the last 20 days. According to him, it started taking place after the torrential rain during Dashain time stopped. 

The landslide is said to be around 250 metres long. It was intense one week back and has now somewhat subsided. The landslide debris that has directly fallen into the river has also blocked the water flow in the river.
