The road for twelve milos is northerly, across a level sandy plain. At 8 miles pass a patch of cultivation, and some palm trees to the right, callod Nigore. At 12 miles enter a lowrango of hills— here for two miles the road is bad, stony, but not very steep. Best of road level and easy, conntry barren. At Tonk shady, and abundant food for camels. No water procurable between Gwadur andTonk. Daram hills bear S. S. E. from camp 5 miles, estimated height 2,000 feet. Thermometer 108° in tont.

From Tonk the road loads moro easterly between two ranges of hills over abarren tract. Lovel easy road all the way. Plenty of shade at this halting place. Thermometer in tent 110°. S. E. the Daram range terminates.

From Beylar the road for six miles leads N. E. over hard barren country to the Talar Pass. After passing the hills it turns N. W. to a low hill range, crossing which, by an easy path enter the plain called Dusht. Nature of Boil and country alters to fertile patches of cultivation and a good deal of low wood. At four miles from Kohuk pass Geki, a grove of date trees and a few huts. Here water is abnndant. Cross the bed of the Dusht Khor close to Kohuk, now nearly quite dry. The course is here westerly. This latter part of the road is good. Kohuk is on the north side of tho Khor.

The road from Kohuk re-crosses the bed of the Khor and leads N. E. along the left bank through fields of cotton and jungle; closo to Kuntadar, it again crosses the Khor, this place being situated on the right bank. Good road all the way, and water readily obtained.
