  • Kathmandu - Weak shaking
  • Lamabagar, Dolakha - I was about 300m right above the Tamakoshi River, walking along the steep slopes. Because it was drizzling from early morning, I was wearing an Umbrella gifted by a Chinese professor. I was moving towards the upper region of Himalaya for forest inventory work. When shock started, I initially thought rain intensity increased bringing larger drops on umbrella, but within 2 seconds, the shake of all earth mass begin. I was jumped in the hill side and lucky to say, felled rock could not touch me.
