In the article we have studied the current state of the soil-landscape complexes of the alpine zone basin of the rivers Garachay-Velvelechay, analyzed the changes that have occurred over the past 50 years, and estimation has been given. It was revealed that unregulated grazing causes, first, a change in plant formations (cereals and cereal-legume plants are replaced by weeds), thinness, and then the destruction of vegetation, which in turn causes soil degradation. In general, the productivity of alpine meadows at the studied area has decreased by 29%, subalpine meadows - by 18% and meadow steppes - by 16%. As a result of erosion processes, sometimes passing into pasture digression, the physical and chemical and physical properties of soils have deteriorated.
