Kathmandu, Aug 13 (PTI) At least 55 people have died and nearly 700 tourists, including 200 Indians, stranded at a popular tourist district in central Nepal due to flooding and landslides triggered by heavy rainfall, officials said today.
Heavy rainfall has lashed Nepal for the past three days, swelling several Himalayan rivers beyond the danger mark and causing flooding and landslides at many places in the country.
