The rubble from the overnight avalanche has covered about 70 meters of road, and officials say it will take some time to clean the route for one-way traffic.

Vehicles are currently being redirected over a narrower and lengthier road that travels through the Darjeeling hills, according to the officials.

The region is a difficult zone on the state’s lifeline NH-10, some 60 kilometers from the Sikkim border town of Rangpo. At least four times this monsoon, it has been closed by landslides.
