Heavy rains, accompanied by a hailstorm, lashed Pithoragarh district on Wednesday evening causing the landslides, which blocked a four-metre stretch of the road, they said.
Pithoragarh District Magistrate Rajiv Joshi told PTI that Border Roads Organisation (BRO) personnel were working round the clock to clear the landslides.
BRO officials said it would take about one week to clear the road for heavy traffic.
No casualties have been reported in the area, Joshi added.
