Last summer, there was high alert in Himachal Pradesh in the Sutlej river area .
What is the situation these days?
Someone has been to this part of HP recently?

Thank you

The alert on the Sutlej was caused by fears that a glacial lake, over the border in Tibet, would melt and flow into the Sutlej Valley causing death and destruction. Luckily this didn't happen. We were in the area shortly after the warning was lifted.

With the coming of winter the lake in Tibet will be solid ice again, so no problems at the moment.
