Nugal (Somali: Nugaal, Arabic: نوغال) is an administrative region (gobol) in northeastern Somalia.
It is bordered by Ethiopia and the Somalian regions of Sool to the west, Bari to the north, and Mudug to the south. The Indian Ocean flanks the province to the east.
Nugal is centered on Garowe, the capital of the autonomous Puntland macro-region.
A major geographic feature of the region is the Nugaal Valley, a large shallow drainage basin fed by the Nugal and Dheer seasonal rivers during the April-June rainy season.
