History

Khuzdar was the capital of the Brahui kingdom of Makran. [4]

Ruins of Thore kheer, Hitachi, Harav, Kial Being and Pasta Khan reveal the belonging of Moola to the 2,000-year-old civilization. Moola River, located in the mountains of Dist Khuzdar, is the largest river of the Khuzdar region that flows throughout the year. Moola Valley is a 1237 meter long bow-shaped region, 80 kilometres (50 mi) away from Khuzdar District. It is named after the Moola Village and River, which flows through the length of the valley. The valley is home to several mountain ranges, salt mines, lakes, and waterfalls.

Demography

Jahan is one of the most beautiful villages of Sub Tehsil Moola. The population is estimated to be over 20,000. The local language of Moola Chotok is Brahui. [5]

Weather

In summer, it is one of the hottest places in the country like Sibi and Dhadar. In winter, it is one of the coldest places. Temperatures vary wildly throughout the year, with summer highs commonly exceeding 120 °F (48.9 °C) and winter minimum temperatures sometimes falling below freezing point. [5] Weather conditions can greatly affect hiking and valley exploration, and visitors should obtain accurate forecasts because of hazards posed by exposure to extreme temperatures and late summer monsoons.
