EIA Case Study: Environmental management of the Bagmati River Basin

Published Date: 
08/2006

The Bagmati River is the principal river of the Bagmati Basin (ca. 3640km2) in central Nepal. The river, fed by springs and monsoon rainfall, originates in the north of Kathmandu Valley (the capital of Nepal) and drains across the Mahabharat Range to the Gangetic plain. The Basin transacts three distinct latitudinal physiographic zones (Mountain, Siwalik and Terai) of the Nepal Himalayas. Hard rock geological formations at the Basin headwaters stand out as a resistant ridge complex compared to the weak and fragile rock formations at the middle stretches of the Basin.
