The northeastern part of Pakistan is known to be a region of extremes, where the highest reliefs and the longest glaciers of the world may be found. In this environment, through the multidisciplinary Social, Economic and Environmental Development (SEED) Project the knowledge of the sustainable exploitation possibilities of the Central Karakoram National Park area (CKNP) will be improved. One of this project's objectives is the analysis of the geological hazards giving as output a landslide inventory and a susceptibility map, utilizable as functional tools for a future sustainable territorial planning. The Bagrot Valley, chosen as test site, was partially field surveyed and part of the landslide-prone areas preliminarily identified through DEM analysis, GIS techniques and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) methodology, were later validated on the field. ASTER DEM was used as the basis of morphometric analysis.
