The climate of Himachal alters with the change of altitude. Landslides can occur in H.P and mountains during the monsoon season, deforestation, road slicing, terracing, and changes in agricultural output vegetation increased the hazard of geologically young and now not so strong steep slopes in various Himalayan grades at a rapid rate in recent years. In the present study the investigation was conducted on the four-lane NH- 154 Pathankot to Mandi and number of landslides was observed. It was found that Rainfall causes the majority of landslides, according to research. The largest no. of landslides were recorded in winter season in Kangra followed by Joginder Nagar. Dharamshala is more prone to landslides whereas in Post monsoon highest landslides were recorded in Mandi.
