The Indus Plains

The Indus Plains form the western part o the Indo Gangetic Plain of the northern part of the sub-continent. To the south of the salt range begins vast plan that extends south to the shores of the Arabian Sea. This plain is irrigated by the Indus and its tributaries and is called Indus Plain. This plain is further divided into two parts.
a.       Upper Indus. Plain: This includes the .plains of Punjab, Bahawalpureand Khairpur Divisions. Roughly speaking, the area south of salt range and above Mithankot is called Upper Indus Plain. This area lies from two to three hundred metres . above the sea level and is one Df the most fertile areas of the world.
b.      The Lower Indus Plain: South of Mithankot, the Indus and its tributaries join to make a great river. Here it flows very slowly and the silt begins to settle along its course. Many dams/ barrages have been built to irrigate the land in this area. These have brought prosperity to the province of Sind. Yet greater Parts of the northwest and south — east of Sind are still a desert dotted with sand dunes. It may also be noted that on the West Bank of Indus and the Kirthar Hills lies to "Piedmont Plan" with innumerable small streams. In the rainy season water from these streams helps cultivate "Rabbi Crops".
