Dolakha, one of the districts worst affected by the 25 April earthquake, was struck again by the 7.3 earthquake on 12 May, with the epicenter located in Dolakha district. The earthquake was followed by several aftershocks; the largest one with a magnitude of 6.3 (GDACS 12/05/2015). 134 people have been reported dead and 304 people injured since 25 April. Of these, 57 people have died as a result of the more recent 12 May earthquake. These numbers are expected to rise as more injured and dead are discovered in Dolakha. All VDCs are reported to have been affected by the earthquakes.
Additional concerns have been raised over rainfall and reported landslides, which may cause further damage and hamper humanitarian access. Immediately after the 12 May earthquake there were concerns raised over the large glacial lake of Tsho Rolpa in the north of the district, which is held back by a fragile natural dam and threatens thousands of villagers should it burst. Recent information from local sources described cracks in the dam The lake is currently frozen. Access is by
helicopter, or by road to Charicot followed by a 5 day trek reach the lake due to landslides at Singati blocking the road.
Charikot is the district headquarters (Nepal Census 2011). The northern and northeastern parts of Dolakha have the highest altitudes in the district and are the most remote, with altitudes over 4000 metres. Most settlements and villages are in the southwestern parts of the district (Map Action) (OSOCC Assessment Cell). The Sherpa people inhabit the northeastern mountainous part of the district, the Tamang people live in the northwestern part, while the rest of the southwestern parts are inhabited mainly by Nepali-speaking Chhetri.
