Abstract: The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is an important land corridor for China's external exchanges. It traverses the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the Pamir Plateau, the West Kunlun Mountains and the Karakoram Mountains and other areas with strong tectonic activities and active glaciations. Geohazards such as rockfalls and landslides threaten the safety of human activities, operation of the Karakoram Highway (KKH) and other projects in the region. This study collected the spatial information data of the rockfalls and landslides near the KKH and other projects in the corridor (Kashgar in China, and all over Pakistan) through remote sensing interpretation, field investigation and literature research. Then, the geological causes of these geohazards were analyzed. Finally, the data and investigation results of the geohazards in the study area were processed and compiled. The dataset includes: the dataset of rockfalls’ points distributions, surfaces (boundaries) and related attributes in CPEC; the dataset of landslides’ points distributions, surfaces (boundaries) and related attributes in CPEC. The dataset can be used for studying rockfalls and landslides in CPEC, and provides basic scientific data support for the geohazard risk assessment and construction of CPEC.
