Abstract: The present study is an attempt to examine the physiography and geology of Gori Ganga Watershed, Kumaun Himalaya, Uttarakhand (India). The study completed of physiography and geology used natural resource data management system data from Department of Geography, S. S. J. Campus Almora, Uttarakhand (India). Gori Ganga watershed has two great physical diversities on the basis of physiographic features and five geological groups and six lithological formations which includes in the present study. The geological study is most important for social problems, such as energy, water, mineral resources, environment, climate change and natural hazards like landslides, volcanoes, earthquakes and floods. The demand is growing at present for well-trained geoscientists with geological knowledge and remote sensing and geographic information system knowledge.
