Assessment of Landslide Susceptibility Along the Araniko Highway in Poiqu/Bhote Koshi/Sun Koshi Watershed, Nepal Himalaya


In this article, landslide susceptibility along the Araniko highway was assessed using linear discriminant analysis, resulting in four susceptibility zones: Low, Medium, High, and Very High. The analysis showed that areas with slopes between 40°-60°, a south-east or south aspect, within 0–5 km north from the Main Central Thrust (MCT), and 10–20 km from the epicenter, especially in barren and forested areas, were most susceptible to landslides. This research can guide effective mitigation and adaptation measures for landslide risk along the Araniko highway.a
