The aim of present study is to produce landslide susceptibility map of Sindhu Khola watershed, Sindhupalchok, Kavre, Nepal, using Geographic Information System (GIS) by means of frequency ratio. The ArcView was used as primary software for the management of spatial data. Landslide locations were identified during the field visit. There are altogether seven different factors such as topographic slope, aspect, distance from drainage and so on, and their respective relations with the occurrence of landslides in the study area were analyzed. These factors were used to produce landslide susceptibility map using frequency ratio method.
