Geography
 Balochistan is located at the eastern edge of the Iranian
plateau and in the border region between Southwest,
Central, and South Asia.
 It is geographically the largest of the four provinces at
347,190 km² (134,051 square miles) of Pakistani
territory; and composes 48% of the total land area of
Pakistan.
 The population density is very low due to the
mountainous terrain and scarcity of water.
 The southern region is known as Makran.
 The central region is known as Kalat.
 At Gwadar on the coast the Pakistani government is
currently undertaking a large project with Chinese help
to build a large port.

The capital city is Quetta, located in the most densely
populated district in the northeast of the province. Quetta
is situated in a river valley near the border with
Afghanistan, with a road to Kandahar in the northwest.
 The Sulaiman Mountains dominate the northeast
corner and the Bolan Pass is a natural route into
Afghanistan towards Kandahar, used as a
passageway during the British campaigns to
Afghanistan.
 Much of the province south of the Quetta region is
sparse desert terrain with pockets of towns mostly
near rivers and streams.
Climate
 Very cold winters and hot summers
characterise the climate of the upper
highlands.
 Summers are hot and dry, especially the arid
zones of Chaghai and Kharan districts.
 The desert climate is characterised by hot
and very arid conditions. Occasionally strong
windstorms make these areas very
inhospitable.
Demographics

 Balochistan has a population of around 10


million inhabitants.
 Overall, the Baloch population is about 62%
whilst the Brahui tribes and Pashtuns
comprise 32% of the province's population.
