Landscape

The landscape of Pakistan ranges from lofty mountains in the north, the Karakoram and the Himalayas, through dissected plateaus to the rich alluvial plains of the Punjab. Then follows desolate barrenness of Balochistan and the hot dry deserts of Sindh blending into miles and miles of golden beaches of Mekran coast.

Pakistan is a land of many splendours. The scenery changes northward from coastal beaches, lagoons and mangrove swamps in the south to sandy deserts, desolate plateaus, fertile plains, dissected upland in the middle and high mountains with beautiful valleys, snow-covered peaks and eternal glaciers in the north.

 

Location and Geography

Pakistan is situated between latitude 24 and 37 degrees North and longitude 61 and 75 degrees East. The country is bounded to the west by Iran, to the south-east by India, Afghanistan to the north-west, China to the north-east and the Arabian Sea to the south. The great mountain ranges of the Himalayas, the Karakorams and the Hindukush form Pakistan''s northern highlands of North West Frontier Province and the Gilgit-Baltistan. Punjab province is a flat, alluvial plain with five major rivers dominating the upper region eventually joining the River Indus flowing south to the Arabian Sea. Sindh is bounded to the east by the Thar Desert and the Rann of Kutch and to the west by the Kirthar range. Balochistan Plateau is an arid tableland, encircled by dry mountains.
