Abstract

Eleven soil profiles of the Mt. Everest region (Dudh Kosi and Beni Khola valley) between 2,700 and 4,900 m a.s.l. were investigated to provide information about soil classification, zonal distribution, and changes in the chemical and mineralogical properties with elevation and climatic conditions. The soils are mainly developed from deposits of the last main glaciation which are predominated by paragneisses. They were classified as Entisols, Inceptisols, and Spodosols according to the U.S. Soil Taxonomy
