IMPACT OF LANDSLIDE AND EROSION CONTROL TREATMENT UNDER TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT EXTENSION & TRAINING PROJECT
Sikkim, a small mountainous state in the eastern Himalayas covers an area of 7069 sq. km., extending approximately 114 km from north to south and 64 km east to west. It is also a hilly state consisting of tangled series of interlocking mountain chains rising range above range from the south to the foot of high peaks which marks the snow line in the north. The topography is such that it has earned itself a characteristic feature and the unavoidable natural disaster of all, the landslide. Landslide has thus been a part of this state since its formation.
