The geological survey was carried out in Bisteutar and Jhyadi villages in the Bhimtar area. These villages lie at latitudes 27.709 N and 27.707 N and longitudes 85.670 E and 85.676 E. Bisteutar village can clearly be separated into two morphologies, the side facing Indrawati river has alluvial deposits whereas the one facing Jhyadi khola has slaty phyllites. Jhyadi village has slaty phyllites lying over low grade sandstone. Cracks 5-10 centimeters in width and 2-3 meters in depth were observed in both the villages thus implying high probability of possible landslides in the monsoon season.
