Description :
This paper reports the results of a three-year study of landsliding (1991,1992 and 1993) in 4 subcatchments of the Likhu Khola basin, Middle Hills, Nepal. The largest failures occurred in the drier south-facing catchments, the vast majority being small, almost planar slumps on the risers of agricultural terraces. Thus the results indicate that landsliding is a significant contributor to overall denudation but that large-scale landsliding is not a major problem in the study area.
