Balason Valley with Singbulli Tea Garden and landslides

WI_in110.jpg

View from Rishi Road connecting Siliguri and Mirik in northern direction to a tea garden and up the Balason Valley. Whereas the slopes of the valley are most likely shaped by huge landslide systems, the numerous smaller landslide scars are mostly related to monsoonal rainfall events. The town of Kurseong can be seen on the upper right side.
