Overview

The mountains of Nepal are one of the most hazardous environments in the world, with frequent landslides caused by tectonic activity, extreme rainfall and infrastructure development. As a landlocked country, Nepal relies on proper functioning of major transportation networks such as the highways to sustain and improve the livelihoods of the population. Every year there are reports of landslides blocking the highways, especially during the rainy season; however, the frequency and location of landslides along the highway corridors are not well reported. RapidEye satellite imagery was used to create annual landslide initiation point inventories along three important highways in Nepal: the Arniko, Karnali, and Pasang Lhamu highway.
