You can see this Gigantic North India Landslide From Space

Recent satellite images taken by the Indian Space Research Organization's CartoSat-2 have shown a gigantic landslide in Northern India.

"The landslide believed to be occurred sometime around December 31 last year in Northern India has sent enough debris into the Tsarap River, creating an obstruction about 2,000 feet (600 meters) long, and a brand new 300-acre lake", io9 has written.

As of January 20, 2015, that dam was about 600 meters (2,000 feet) long, according to an analysis of satellite imagery collected by the Indian Space Research Organization’s CartoSat-2. The artificial lake that formed behind the dam was nearly 8 kilometers (5 miles) long and covered about 55 hectares (300 acres).

After surveying the situation on January 18, a team of civilian and military engineers recommended that people who live downstream move to higher ground. They also discouraged authorities from using explosives to clear the blockage as doing so could trigger additional landslides.

Huge landslide in Sindhupalchowk region of Nepal had blocked the river and created a similar dam in August 2014.
