A landslide has closed a section of the Palpa-Butwal road


The Palpa-Butwal road section has been closed since early Saturday morning due to persistent rains that have lasted three days.

The highway was closed due to a landslide in Tinau rural municipality-3, Sisuwa, according to Sub Inspector Som Bahadur Saru.

It will most likely take three hours to remove the landslide that has fallen from the jungle at Sisuwa.

Because of the road closure, all vehicles traveling to Palpa from Butwal and vice versa have been halted, according to Saru.
