Attock Tehsil (Urdu: تحصیل اٹک) is one of the six tehsils (subdivisions) of Attock District in the Punjab province of Pakistan. 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.
