Earthquake of 3.4 magnitude rocks Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi

An earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale shook Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi district on Thursday afternoon but there was no report of any casualty or damage to property, officials said.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The quake’s epicentre was at a depth of 10 km north-east of Mandi, the Meteorological department said, adding that tremors were felt in and around the district at 12.44 pm.

Himachal Pradesh is prone to earthquakes.

Light to moderate intensity quakes are regular as several parts of the hill-state fall under seismic zone five. An earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale had hit the Chamba district on Tuesday. An earthquake of 7.8 magnitude had devastated the Kangra district in 1905, killing over 20,000 people.
