Landslides in the three studied basins of the Siwalik Hills are not random in distribution; they tend to cluster in certain areas implying the control of certain in situ factors or their combination.

Landslide controlling in situ factors were reviewed and analyzed from maps, aerial photos and imageries using by: major highways in central Nepal. As a result of landslide mapping using aerial photographs, topographical maps, and field verification, the following points were understood: 1) the distribution of large-scale landslides is relatively dense over the area Impact of landslides in Siwalik area of Mahottary District to tectonic thrusts, 2) slate and phyllite zones have a greater.
