The Indus plain is a large area of land in Pakistan that is drained by the Indus River. The plain covers an area of about 1.5 million square kilometers, making it one of the largest river plains in the world. TheIndus plain is home to some of Pakistan’s major cities, including Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad.
The climate of the plain is mostly arid, with hot summers and cool winters. Most of the rainfall occurs in the monsoon season from July to September. The Indus plain has been an important center of human activity for thousands of years.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the region was first inhabited by hunter-gatherers during the Late Pleistocene period (around 10,000 BC). By early historical times, the region was being settled by various Indo-Aryan peoples. The first major civilization to arise in the Indus plain was that of the Harappa’s (also known as the Indus Valley Civilization), which flourished between 2600 and 1900 BC.
