Birendra lake outbrust

There was a glacier lake outburst in the Gorkha district yesterday. The glacier lake, known as Birendra Lake (3700m), is located north of Samagaun, before reaching the Manaslu (8163m) Himal Base Camp. Due to an avalanche from the Manaslu, the lake water splashed down, causing a flash flood downstream towards the lower lands of the Budi Gandaki River. According to news agencies, the bridge between Samdo village and Sama Gaun village (along the Manaslu Circuit trekking route) was destroyed by the flash flood.
