Natural disasters in Nepal. Being located in a geologically young area where the Indian and Eurasian plates collide and continue to move contributes to many natural disasters. The resulting Himalayas continue to grow with other contributing factors being a monsoon climate and indiscriminate building of roads and dwellings. This results in regular landslides, floods and earthquakes with the April 25th, 2015 Gorkha earthquake being the biggest of these in recent times.
