This paper reviews various aspects of landslide activity on this lithologically heterogeneous high relief setting. The aspects discussed include the setting and trigger factors of landslides. These are discussed within a temporal framework of landslide development. Examples of landslides, especially major progressive and now stable landslides, illustrate this time frame. The role of human activity in landslide development and perspectives for a better understanding of landslides and their hazards are also briefly examined
