Islamic Republic of Pakistan

Location and Geography

Pakistan is situated at the crossroads of the Middle East and South Asia. It is bordered by Iran and Afghanistan in the West, China in the North-east, India in the East, and the Indian Ocean in the South. There are six major regions: the North High Mountainous Region, the West Low Mountainous Region, the Balochistan Plateau, the Potohar Uplands, the Punjab and the Sindh Plains. As the country is located on a great landmass in the North of the Tropic of Cancer, it has a continental type of climate characterised by extreme variations of temperature, both seasonally and daily. Very high altitudes moderate the climate in the snow-covered Northern mountains.
