The road for twelve miles is northerly, across a level sandy plain. At 8 miles pass a patch of cultivation, and some palm trees to the right, called Nigore. At 12 miles enter a low. range of hills— here for two miles the road is bad, stony, but not very steep. Rest of road level and easy, country barren. At Tonk shady, and abundant food for camels. No water procurable between Gwadur andTonk. Daram hills bear S. S. E. from camp 6 miles, estimated height 2,000 feet. Thermometer 108° in tent.

From Tonk the road leads more easterly between two ranges of hills over abarren tract. Level 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 soil 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 abundant. Cross the bed of the Dusht Khor close to Kohuk, now nearly quite dry. The course is hero westerly. This latter part of the road is good. Kohuk is on the north side of the Khor.

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