Nanda Devi Mountain is close to the border of northeastern India with China and is the second highest peak in India.

In a village on the Indian side of the Himalayas, generations of villagers believed that under the towering snow and rocks of the mountains above them, nuclear devices were buried.

Therefore, when a major flood hit Raini in early February this year, the villagers there were very panicked, and there were rumors that those devices “exploded” that caused the flood. In fact, scientists believe that the flood that killed more than 50 people in Uttarakhand, India, was caused by a broken glacier.

Lenny is a farming mountain village composed of 250 households. If you tell the scientists’ theory to the people who live there, many people will not accept this statement. “We think those devices may be part of it. How could a glacier break casually in winter? We think the government should investigate and find those devices,” the leader of the village of Leni, Sangram Singh Rawat, told me. .

What brought them the greatest fear was a mysterious spy legend that took place at a high altitude, which involved several world-class climbers, some radioactive materials needed for the operation of electronic reconnaissance systems, and secret agents.
