In the Hindu Kush Mtns. in northern Pakistan, landslides from the steep, glaciated terrain are common. When the landslides block rivers, they form temporary lakes or cause small lakes to grow larger. If the landslide dams fail catastrophically, an instantaneous flood surges down the narrow valley, endangering downstream villages. A good example is Lake Shuwarang Chhat, that is upstream of villages of Barsat, Tery, Bahach, and Hundarap. The perspective view data were acquired September23, 2019, and are located at 36 degrees north, 72.6 degrees east.
