Landslides in the Nilgiris are mainly due to rainfall, but human intervention in the form of deforestation and plantation has turned this into a calamity. Our study in the Nilgiris district of Tamilnadu help of the Global Land Cover Facility data reveals that there is a drastic reduction in forest cover and human interventions in the form of unplanned tea estates has resulted in the loss of natural ecosystem of Nilgiris which is causing massive and frequent landslides. © Indian Society of Remote Sensing 2008.
