Mandakini flowing above Danger Mark, Pickup Truck Washed Away, Watch Video

May 21, 2021 – Rescue workers turned schools into makeshift shelters and began helping evacuate hundreds of villagers in the upper reaches of Rudraprayag district after almost all the major rivers in Uttarakhand edged towards their danger mark on Wednesday.

Officials expected water levels of the three major rivers – Alaknanda, Mandakini, and Bhagirathi – to rise further as torrential rains continued to slam many parts of the state. The situation appears particularly delicate in Rudraprayag where the Mandakini is flowing above its danger level with a rising trend.


According to local villagers, they have never seen the Mandakini river flowing like this in the month of May. A Mahindra Bollero Pick-Up Truck gets washed away in the river.

The Driver of the vehicle is safe. However, the pick-up truck was not saved and it gets washed away with the river current. The incident is said to be from the Chandrapuri region in Rudraprayag of Uttarakhand.
