Saturday, 22 July, witnessed a massive landslide blocking the Chandigarh-Manali highway and leaving hundreds of vehicles stranded on both sides. If that was not it, another landslip occurred near Jogni Mata temple in Mandi district, completely chocking the highway. 
The area is highly vulnerable to landslides as the formation of loose layers of rocks and soil cannot stand the fury of heavy rains. 

This is the third incident of landslide on the national highway in Mandi district in the last eight days.

First on July 16, a landslide that triggered rock fall had blocked highway at Hanogi temple, second near Dheyad on July 22 and now on Sunday.
