Attock Tehsil (Urdu: تحصیل اٹک‎) is one of the six tehsils (subdivisions) of Attock District in the Punjab province of Pakistan.[1] It lies between 33º38' and 34º0' N. and 72º7' and 72º50' E, with an area of 651 square miles (1,690 km2). The Indus bounds it on the north-west, dividing it from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, while the Haro flows through from east to west. The north-west corner is occupied by the fertile Chach plain. South of this lies a dry sandy plain, beyond which rises the Kala Chitta Range. The eastern half consists of the tract known as the Nala, which includes, along with a number of low hills and much broken country, a considerable area of fairly good level land, portions of which are irrigated from wells and by cuts from the Haro and other smaller streams.[2]
