Sixty-four tourists were rescued from North Sikkim's Lachung on Monday and moved to Mangan town, officials said. The rescue operation, however, had to be halted due to inclement weather, and the remaining tourists would be moved on Tuesday, they said. Around 1,200 tourists, stuck in Lachung, were supposed to be airlifted, but the adverse weather conditions hampered the plans. At first, nine tourists were brought to Mangan by road, and another 55 joined them later in the day, officials said. The district administration had to set up log bridges over the slides to facilitate movement by foot and by vehicles where roads were motorable, they said.
