The officials have issued a warning that a breach could result in flooding the tributaries of Chenab river.

"The lakes (six to seven of them), which were small when I visited earlier, have accumulated much more water now. Some of the lakes are between 1.5 to 2 km long and pose a serious threat," MLA Lahaul and Spiti and vice chairman of National Commission for Scheduled Tribes Ravi Thakur said.

He also said that that the matter will be raised with the state government and it would be requested to send a team of geologists to take a stock of the threat.

"I have requested the state government to send a team of experts to estimate the extent and size of the flood threat so that we can raise an alarm. The threat may not be immediate but we cannot downplay it," Ravi added.
