The Maya village of Pachaljharana Rural Municipality-8 in Kalikot district is at high risk of dry landslides. The land in the village is subsiding now.

There are 32 households in the village which are subsiding even during the winter. The land is caving in and house walls have been developing cracks for four days here, said the former chair of Pachaljharana Rural Municipality, Khadka Raj Sejuwal.

"There is neither landslide nor roadway down the village, but the land is getting sunk," he said, adding that even the walls of newly built houses developed cracks. He warned that the village is at imminent risk, wondering it is not rainy season either.

Chief of police at the Area Police Office of Pachaljharana, Janak Bhandari shared that they were informed about the land getting caved in at Maya village and the villagers are asked to shift the settlement because it was poised to risk.

Local leaders and police have suggested the villagers leave the village because it would face risk at any time, he added.

A local Ram Bahadur BK also said it was not raining but the houses were losing surface which panicked the entire village. "Why the land is caving in, we're not aware of it," he said, adding that they were frightened much.

Similarly, the chair of the rural municipality, Dev Jung Shahi, said efforts were begun to ensure temporary shelters for the households facing the risk of landslide.
