Today morning we woke up to the news of a 6.7 magnitude earthquake hitting Manipur. The closest trek to this region is the Sandakphu-Phalut. Naturally, friends and relatives of trekkers on this trek were worried. They got in touch in with us to know about the well being of trekkers in the January 2, 2016 batch.

The update is this – Sandakphu trek has received very mild tremors. And it hasn’t affected the trek. All trekkers are safe and Sandakphu trek is running fine.

We have confirmed this with our local staff Suman who was reachable. He said, “Yes there were tremors, but nothing has been affected.”

So please do not worry. And watch out for this space for more updates.
