Kodagu district in Karnataka, India is located on the eastern slope of Western Ghats with high range hills and abundance of forest wealth. However, Kodagu district has witnessed many natural hazards including landslide and floods and the area is becoming more susceptible for soil erosion. This study was aimed to establish a relationship between soil physical properties and relief in landslide affected areas of Kodagu district. The soil physical properties such as soil texture, bulk density, particle density, porosity and infiltration rate were estimated by using standard methods. Thematic maps were generated to assess the soil depth, slope and elevation. It was observed that the landslide affected areas were predominant with sandy clay loam soils which was more vulnerable for land slide.
