Landslide Hazard Zonation, Mapping and Investigation of Triggering Factors in Phewa Lake Watershed, Nepal


The study investigates landslide triggering factors and uses GPS and GIS software, including CartaLinx, ArcView, and ERDAS IMAGINE, in Sarangkot and Kaskikot Village Development Committees in Kaski district. They used the Analytical Hierarchy Process to compare and assign weights to these factors, creating a landslide hazard zonation map with five hazard classes. In the zonation map, 0.44% of the area had very low hazards, 2.11% had low hazards, 54.92% had moderate hazards, 21.34% had high hazards, and 21.19% had very high hazards.
