Dehradun: Experts said on Sunday that land subsidence in Joshimath is primarily caused by the National Thermal Power Corporation’s Tapovan Vishnugad Hydro Power Project and is a stark reminder that people are causing irreversible damage to the environment.

They claim that unplanned infrastructure development is making the Himalayan ecosystem even more vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which acts as a force multiplier.

Cracks have appeared in hundreds of Joshimath homes, the gateway to some well-known pilgrimage sites such as Badrinath and Hemkund Sahib.
