Video: Huge Avalanche hits mountains around Kedarnath Temple
On Saturday morning, a big avalanche hit the slopes behind the Kedarnath temple in Uttarakhand, although there were no reports of damage to the sanctuary. A large mass of snow and other materials are seen falling downhill in a video posted by one of the news organisations, creating a massive cloud of frozen particles that rises far into the air.
The glacier in the Himalayan region behind the well-known Hindu temple of Lord Shiva collapsed for the second time in the previous month, seeming from a distance to be a watershed.
According to reports, an avalanche hit the Himalayan region this morning, but the Kedarnath shrine was unharmed.
